On the radio, the second series of his sitcom ‘Hal’ (co-written with Dominic Holland) was recently broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and he has released two comedy DVDs, ‘Tough Luvvie’ (Universal) and ‘Straight Outta Cruttenden’(Amazon Prime and NextUpComedy.com). He has toured the country extensively and, in the last two years, has also taken shows to the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the New Zealand Comedy Festival. 
Having originally trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, Hal’s acting career includes roles on TV and film in ‘Shackleton’; ‘Eastenders’; ‘Kavanagh QC’; ‘Out of the Blue’; ‘Touching Evil’ and ‘Bramwell’.
He has completed four nationwide tours in the last few years: ‘Straight Outta Cruttenden’(2015/16) ’Tough Luvvie’ (2013/14), ‘The Tiny Rage Tour’(2011) and ‘Lively (2010). Hal returns to the Riverhouse stage with a preview of his new Edinburgh Fringe and UK tour show 'Hal Cruttenden: Chubster'. 

Darren Harriott is one of the most exciting comedians on the circuit. Over the last couple of years, he has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, BBC Radio 4’s Best of the Fest, The Now Show and 5Live's Fighting Talk. He also features in a series for Comedy Central Online, and has his own BBC Three short coming soon.
2017 saw Darren head to the Edinburgh Festival with his debut hour Defiant at the Pleasance Courtyard, which was a big hit with audiences and critics alike. In 2018, following a run at the Soho Theatre, he jetted off to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where he appeared on the televised Gala.
Originally from Birmingham, and now living in London, he is a regular at clubs such as 99 Club, Top Secret, Backyard Comedy Club, The Boat Show, Up the Creek and The Glee.
A confident performer with a captivating charm, Darren’s comedy deals with everything from subverting stereotypes, to everyday observations, to that juiciest of topics, religion – all with a cutting edge.
He will be previewing his new 2018 Edinburgh Fringe show 'Darren Harriott: Visceral'.
