Following his introduction to clowning by the incredible John Wright, Gethin decided to become a comedian.
His work is physical, absurd and often includes the audience getting involved in some way. His characters have included Dee Dee, the Australian Confidence Consultant, Jacques the Cat, the French Cat, and his current character: himself and his performance art dedicated to limes.
In addition to solo comedy, he has also performed and written sketch comedy for satirical comedy show NewsRevue, the World’s longest running live comedy show.
He has featured twice in short films for Channel 4’s Random Acts, but you are most likely to recognise him for his acting work in a number of adverts, most famously as Roy, Royal London’s time-travelling spokesperson.
Following a successful 45 minute trial at Edinburgh Fringe 2018, he will be returning this year with his debut hour: “Gethin Alderman is: SUBLIME”.
