Fred Cooke talks to Hot Press about taking to the stage at Leopardstown this weekend!
"...so I finally got home to Kells on the 22nd and a mate of mine says to me, 'Are you finished work for Christmas.' I just laughed and replied, 'mate, I finished up work ten years ago!'"
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, let's give a big hand for one Ireland's most inimitable comedians. A man who's graced the stage with the likes of Tommy Tiernan, Dara O Brian, Ross Noble, Jason Byrne, Neil Delamere and Des Bishop, he's also the same face that you've seen crop up on Republic of Telly, Operation Transportation, Savage Eye, and a bunch of other shows it'd take us too long to mention.
A man who very modestly admits that being a comedian means he has the best job in the world (no job for him at all, in fact), Fred Cooke might be in for one of his unique gigs yet this weekend - joining in the celebrations (or easing the woes, as the case may be) of the crowds who've spent the day at the Dublin Racing Festival. What does he have in store for us then?
