Rising comedy star


Following on from his sell out success in 2011 Fred Cooke returns to Whelan’s with his brand new comedy show.Fred realized at a young age that he would never become a professional footballer. In his teen years it was becoming more unlikely of Radiohead accepting him in as their sixth member. It was this moment that he became a multi-award winning stand-up comedian (even before his first gig). Since that moment he has rapidly become a unique stand-up delivering a style of comedy that simply cannot be imitated. Join Fred on the 10th of February in Whelan’s for this years must see stand-up show.

Fred has already contributed to a variety of successful Irish TV shows, both as a writer and performer, including RTE’s Republic of Telly, The Cafe ( as the crazy chef), Watch Your Language (The Mad Professor) The Savage Eye, The Modest Adventures of David O’Doherty and The Liffey Laughs and lets not forget those Spar ads.

Fred has frequently been invited to perform at the largest and most successful festivals both here and abroad, including The Cats Laughs Festival, The Carlsberg Comedy Carnival and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
