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.

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.
Nominated for the prestigious Perrier and The Chortle Awards, Hal continues to tour his show ‘Straight Outta Cruttenden’, his fourth following the highly successful 'Tough Luvvie' which finished in 2015 after 170 dates!

Having originally trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, Hal's acting career has led to roles in Shackleton, Eastenders, Out of the Blue, TouchingEvil and Bramwell; in films such as The Madness of King George and Mrs Dalloway; and on the stage in Making News at the Edinburgh Festival and Orwell A Celebration at Trafalgar Studios London and the Edinburgh Festival.
