Alun Cochrane Is A Centrist Dad
Alun Cochrane examines himself in the UK's changing political spectrum
Despite their bad reputation, Alun Cochrane is fine with being a "Centrist Dad".
Join Alun for this recording of his stand-up special for Radio 4 in which he examines the state of political discourse in Britain and tries to find his place on the ever-evolving UK left-right political spectrum.
Alun has never considered himself an offensive comedian but now finds himself to be one of the few pro free speech comedians. How come he feels right wing in comedy dressing rooms, left wing in general society and comes out as totally centrist on those online "what are your politics" tests?
Alun wants to find out if his politics have changed or if the world has just changed around him and left a reasonable man feeling like an extremist. He is pretty sure he isn't an actual baddie. He spends his days writing jokes in Where's Wally? pyjamas alongside his gluten-free dog. Does that sound like an extremist to you?
