Alun is a master at observational comedy, telling tales about eating, sleeping, daydreaming, driving, being a son, father, brother, husband, friend, mortgage-holder, clothes-wearer, car-owner, radio-listener, train-traveller, door-opener (and closer), alcohol-consumer, hangover-sufferer, newspaper flicker-through-er, occasional football watcher, and general liver of life.
