He has also made several appearances on Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, The Royal Variety Performance, Would I Lie To You, The One Show, The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice and The Apprentice: You’re Fired.

He’s toured extensively in the UK and Ireland over the last ten years, and has taken shows to the Montreal, Melbourne, and New Zealand comedy festivals. Hal has recorded three stand up specials for Next Up - Tough Luvvie, Straight Outta Cruttenden and Chubster.

Agent Recommendation

Hal's comedy is perfect for corporate audiences. He's instantly endearing - with McIntyre-style energy, stage presence (and campness) along with wonderfully self deprecating put-downs. I’m still laughing at the gag about ignoring his child's schooling because she didn't ask him about his own day. JLA Agent Allan Grant
