Hal Cruttenden

Stand-up comedian, host of Live at the Apollo, and Radio 4 star Hal Cruttenden has won rave reviews almost everywhere he has performed, from Belgium to Bahrain. Unashamedly suburban and teetering on the edge of a mid-life crisis, Hal blends the personal with the ridiculous in his rants about the real evils of the modern world.

A top UK comedian, writer and actor, Hal Cruttenden has performed stand-up from Belgium to Bahrain, winning rave reviews at Montreal’s Just For Laughs along the way.

Wise, unashamedly suburban and teetering on the edge of a mid-life crisis, Hal pokes fun at himself as well as the absurdity that surrounds him - from oversharing on social media to the 5:2 diet.

Very easy to work with, professional and friendly. Perfect fit for our audience.
