Hal Cruttenden is a comic conundrum – a cutting edge comedian who is also unashamedly suburban, obsessed with patio furniture and one-upmanship with the neighbours! Moreover, being a married man and a father does little to temper his camp delivery. Perhaps it is no wonder that Hal is, by his own admission, teetering on the edge of a mid-life crisis! The audience show their sympathy in the only way they can - through the enormous laughter his hugely entertaining act engenders!
Hal’s big breakthrough in stand-up came with his nomination for the Perrier Newcomer Award at the 2002 Edinburgh Festival for his solo show Hal. This was followed in 2003 by a highly successful run of his second show, To Hal and Back, which was also performed at the Soho Theatre in London. Today, Hal is a regular at all the top UK comedy clubs and has supported Stephen Merchant, Rob Brydon, Sean Lock, Ardal O’Hanlon and Omid Djalili on their nationwide tours.
TV appearances include Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, The Royal Variety Performance, The 11 O'Clock Show, Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You and The Rob Brydon Show.
