Cat in a Poke – Fiona Frawley, John Lynn, Gearóid Farrelly, Fred Cooke (MC)
Fred Cooke delivers a unique brand of comedy through his musical prowess and wild crafted physical story telling.
He has work on The Tommy Tiernan Show both on RTÉ and 2fm.
Fred became a regular on the highly successful RTÉ Show, The Fear. He has been seen preparing a choral spectical surprise at a proposal in the Electric Picnic, embarrassing one of his fans at the Vodafone Comedy Festival, and proposing to an unexpected lady in Dublin City Centre.
His musical sketches are a constant hilarious success with his Republic of Telly Hidden Camera Prank reaching 1,661,213 hits on Youtube.
His collaboration on Ireland the Musical brought him around every county in Ireland through music and surreal sketches. It now stands at over half a million views.
Gearóid Farrelly’s comedy career got off to a flying start when in the space of a few short weeks he was a finalist in the prestigious “So You Think You’re Funny?” competition at the Edinburgh Festival and winner of Bulmers Nuthin Butt Funny Newcomer competition at the Bulmers festival in Dublin.
A polished live performer, Gearóid’s stand-up appearances for television include “Stand & Deliver”, “Tonight With Craig Doyle” and as a guest of Ardal O’Hanlon for Dave’s “One Night Stand”. In 2012 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Festival with his show “Turbulence” winning a five star review in the process (read it here).
He was then invited to support comedy royalty and living legend Joan Rivers for the Dublin dates of her “Now or Never” tour, following these dates Joan Rivers once again asked him to open for her at one of the largest venues on her UK tour, which was filmed for her reality show.
He recently toured the UK as a support act for Sarah Millican. He is a regular at all major Irish festivals. He toured Ireland many times with Neil Delamere in Ireland. In 2019 he supported Patton Oswalt for his Irish tour dates.
Gearóid is the host of the popular podcast “Fascinated” where he chats to people he is a big fan of about their career and work. The series is a must for fans of 90s pop culture. He has interviewed Grammy Winners, Emmy Winners, Oscar Nominees, Eurovision Winners, Tony Winners, Politicians and Olympians. Last summer he interviewed his favourite actress “Cagney and Lacey” star Tyne Daly on stage at the Galway Film Fleadh.
Recently Gearóid was nominated by the public for a GALA Award (Irish LGBT+ Awards) in the Arts and Entertainment category alongside Graham Norton and Mark Feehily from Westlife. Gearóid will be on tour with his new show “Alchemy” in 2020.
