Al Dawes

Al Dawes eh? Some people have heard of him. Hopefully you will soon be one of them. Since moving to Newcastle upon Tyne some ten years ago, this Oxfordshire lad with Yorkshire, Essex and Finnish heritage has confused his accent even more.

'The making of a night' Newcastle Evening Chronicle

An instantly likeable, but commanding presence on stage, a show with Al Dawes is akin to being licked into fits of giggles by Tommy Cooper’s St Bernard. And Al always has a tot of brandy to hand. Sometimes you will think you shouldn’t be laughing, but aaaah, look at his lovely hair. He talks with misty eyed nostalgia about the great challenges of life. And why more of us should smoke a pipe. Al thinks he is ahead of his time, but it is clear he’s somewhere back in the 50’s.

'A Cheery Billy Bunter of a lad, with a kind face and a warm heart.' BBC.co.uk

Al is a founding member of the Long Live Comedy group, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, and always providing opportunities for new acts to make the first tentative steps onto stage. He’s not drawing parallels between him and the godfather or anything, but you will be surprised at what you get if you kiss his ring.
