Fred Cooke delivers a unique brand of comedy through his musical prowess and well crafted albeit utterly wild physical story-telling.
Currently Fred is perhaps best known for MCing RTE’s most highly viewed show in recent years – The Tommy Tiernan Show. He has previously appeared as a series regular on The Fear and the Republic of Telly.

Julie Jay (insta/twitter/tiktok @juliejaycomedy)
One of Ireland’s most highly-praised contemporary comics Julie regularly appears across a wide range of Irish TV and radio shows and has penned articles for RTE Lifestyle, The Sunday Times, and Sunday Independent.
Stand-up is where Julie has really cemented her reputation as a comedic force however, having acted as resident support act for Ardal O’Hanlon, Tommy Tiernan and Des Bishop.
Julie’s podcasts Up to 90 and Crimeland have a combined download of over 850,000 (Fred has yet to listen)
