How he presents

With fantastic humour and brilliant delivery, Hal Cruttenden takes the personal, the surreal, the ridiculous and the political, and whizzes them into a delicious comedy smoothie that is sweet with a hint of sharpness. He has a fantastic laid back style which hides the sharpness of some of his one-liners.

In Detail

Having originally trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, his acting career includes roles on TV and film in Shackleton, Eastenders, Out of the Blue, Touching Evil and Bramwell. Film credits include: The Madness of King George and Mrs Dalloway. Theatre work includes Making News at the Edinburgh Festival and 'Orwell' - A Celebration at Trafalgar Studios London and the Edinburgh Festival. Internationally, Hal's travelled across Canada on the Just for Laughs Comedy tours. He has also performed shows at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival. Other international comedy tours include India, Bermuda, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Ireland, comedy clubs in the Middle East and venues all over Far East Asia.


Refreshingly honest, energetic, consistent and very funny, Hal Cruttenden takes his own world of the cosy English middle classes, rummages around and pulls out some remarkably dark humour that he finds lurking at the bottom. Certainly not a typical comedian, he actively sets out to attack and dismantle, thus opening up obvious new ways of seeing the world.
