Al has opened, compered and headlined at gigs across the country, from Plymouth to Edinburgh, via Newcastle, Belfast and many other places.
Having shared a bill with acts from Mitch Benn, Robin Ince, Trevor Lock, Simon Evans, Terry Alderton and Felix Dexter, and with appearances on both TV and radio (he has his own drivetime broadcast radio show on OnFM), and with feature film and advert credits to his name, 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 http://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. He is also a member of one of the Wilmops Improv troupe’s house teams, Jury Service, with whom he performs regularly.
Al has a tight 25 minute set and is a strong choice for opening, compering or headlining any gig.
