Getting Out For The Night with Fred Cooke and Julie Jay
New parents and comedy couple Fred Cooke and Julie Jay discuss their status as TikTok legends and their experience teaching intimacy skills on the set of the hit Irish series Normal People.
Expect melodicas! Man Flu! Marital woes and maternity matters.
‘It was either this or couple’s counselling’ – Julie when asked what the show was about.
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.
Julie Jay is a comic who has taken the comedy world by storm in recent months and already has many impressive accolades under her belt, including winning the Forbidden Fruit Comedy Search 2017 and performing at all major festivals (Body and Soul, Alltogether Now, Electric Picnic, Vodafone). She has also supported the biggest names in comedy, including Neil Delamere, Ardal O’Hanlon, Alison Spittle, has been resident support act for Tommy Tiernan on his Paddy Crazy Horse Tour and most recently has MCed the 2019 series of the Tommy Tiernan Show.
Her new show Julie Really Love Me explores her quest for validation, being childless in the state of Gilead, classroom antics, and guards. Yes, lots and lots of guards.
One of the most exciting new voices on the Irish comedy scene, her on-stage warmth accompanied by a sizeable side dish of distinctly Irish self-deprecation. Wry wit, neurotic ponderings and clever joke-writing make her an act not to be missed.
