A busy 2013 saw Alun continuing to co host The Frank Skinner show , he had a new show on Radio 4 and appeared in a new Chris Addison sitcom

Alun is a master at observational comedy, telling tales about eating, sleeping, daydreaming, driving, being a son, father, brother, husband, friend, mortgage-holder, clothes-wearer, car-owner, radio-listener, train-traveller, door-opener (and closer), alcohol-consumer, hangover-sufferer, newspaper flicker-through-er, occasional football watcher, and general liver of life. In short; he gets material from anywhere he wanders in mind or body.

• “I’ve seen comedians before, but Alun took the night to a whole new level, to the point where I almost wanted him to stop because my sides hurt so much from laughing…”
Petplan Awards

• “Alun was ideal for the audience and exceeded expectations and objectives. Alun checked the guestlist and personalised his set to some of the companies present – the audience loved this!”
RAC Magazine, Emap

• “I couldn’t recommend Alun highly enough. He warmed the audience up nicely with an astutely judged and topical routine before delivering the awards with aplomb. He also managed to control the audience as the awards were being handed out, which is no mean feat.”
