t’s our first birthday and we are giving the presents!
Come help us celebrate with Edinburgh previews from Phil Cooper and STEFFAN ALUN. Phil is a highly experienced, very funny act who wins new fans wherever he performs His new show is directed by Albion favourite Ignacio Lopez. Here’s what people are saying about Phil:
“impossible not to be drawn into his expertly delivered dialogues as he rifts off audience interactions – Top class comedian” -MINISTRY COMEDY
“Interesting and original style, he has all the moves of a pro with his easy going and well timed delivery, a very good writer.” – Matt Price
“Very impressive,had everyone in stitches, we will certainly be having him back again and again” -Eminent comedy club
In the first section of the show we have the highly talented STEFFAN ALUN. He is a TV presenter, radio host and actor – but he does those things in Welsh, so you won’t have heard of him. First and foremost a comedian, he has supported Elis James on tour, has performed full runs at the Edinburgh Festival every year from 2015, and is a familiar face at the Machynlleth Comedy Festival since 2013. He recently completed his first tour with the solo show Romantic Comedy, after a hugely successful run at Edinburgh, adding extra dates due to popular demand.
Influenced by his upbringing as a monolingual Welsh-speaker, Steffan’s stories and observations about life in English-speaking UK delight audiences in comedy clubs, arts centres, and theatres across the country. With strong opinions about everything from … well, actually, no, literally everything – he cuts to the quick, without ever going for the cheap shot.
Touching, accomplished and heartfelt storytelling. Watch out for him on tour.
A powerful voice. Articulate, erudite, his material belies a passion for the ludicrous – Noel James
We have top local talent in support, in the shape of Gwen Jones, Sam Lloyd and, making a return to The Albion, Hales Corney.
We’ve packed this show with old and new favourites. And we’ll probably have cake. We’re pretty sure to have cake.
So come and celebrate our first birthday with us. Comedy at The Albion. We Are One
