Having shared a bill with acts from Mitch Benn, Robin Ince, Trevor Lock, Simon Evans, Terry Alderton and Felix Dexter, and with appearances on TV, radio (he has had his own drivetime broadcast radio show on OnFM), TV commercials and film, he is a rising comedic star and a quality compere.

At the Edinburgh Festival 2010 Al hosted a 44 run show with the cream of the Fringe (see www.LLAUGH.com/edfringe.html ) and at the 2011 Festival he performed in a phenomenal 100 shows in 20 days.

Patrick Monahan - (Al has) funny bones and a great charm on stage
Marcel Lucont - Al was just too popular!
Norman Lovett - Al Cowie is one of the best comperes I have ever worked with

Al was recently the warm up act for Adam Bloom and is resident compere at several London comedy clubs.

In August 2012 he went to Chicago, where he spent 3 months of intensive improvised comedy training at Second City, iO and the Annoyance Theater.

Al has a tight 25 minute set and is a strong choice for opening, compering or headlining any gig.
