Loveable comedian Hal Cruttenden has extended his huge UK tour and has several dates across Wales! The show  ‘Straight Outta Cruttenden’ covers many topics including – over sharing on social media, Hal’s love of hard core rap music(!) and his belief that the UK is destined to split up very soon so England should jump the gun and leave Scotland!

Hal is bringing his hilarious show to Monmouth on 14th October, Cardigan on 15th October and Cardiff on 16th October. 






Hal has broad appeal – he’s equally at home chatting about cakes on Bake Off as he is discussing politics with Jacob Rees-Mogg on Have I Got News For You.  In ‘Straight Outta Cruttenden’ He talks about many topics including over sharing on social media, his love of hard core rap music and his belief that the UK is destined to split up very soon so England should jump the gun and leave Scotland first but take the nice bits on the way (the castles… no that’s about it). His camp exterior neatly disguises a topical comedian who can pack a punch.


‘He’s naturally funny…challenging and provocative’
