Next Tuesday, May 22nd at Róisín Dubh’s “Comedy KARLnival”, host Karl Spain is joined by Fred Cooke from RTE’s Republic Of Telly, The Fear & The Tommy Tiernan Show, Johnny Graham who is resident MC at Ireland’s Smallest Comedy Club in The Dew Drop Inn and The Tedfest Toilet Duck Award Winner 2017 and there’s a short spot from Michael Rice


Until recent years, Fred Cooke was probably best known to your mammy as ‘Fergus’ from the series of Spar TV ads but of late, his star as risen with a high profile gig as the dapper MC on The Tommy Tiernan Show. Both as writer and performer, he has contributed to a variety of successful Irish TV shows including Republic of Telly, The Café (as The Crazy Chef), The Savage Eye, The Modest Adventures of David O’Doherty and The Liffey Laughs.  Onstage he’s a very different beast, delivering a unique style of comedy that simply cannot be imitated. Fred has performed at many comedy festivals both here and abroad, including The Cat Laughs and the Edinburgh Fringe. He has supported his comedy hero Ardal O’Hanlon on a massive nationwide tour. He has also supported such high profile acts as Tommy Tiernan, Dara O Brian, Ross Noble, Jason Byrne, Neil Delamere and Des Bishop.

The Galway-based Tullamore native Johnny Graham has shared the stage with Dave McSavage and the Rubberbandits to name a few. Star of viral video, “Man Flu: The truth” (which has received over a million hits), as well as other successful YouTube pieces, Johnny also runs and hosts “Ireland’s Smallest Comedy Club” in Galway city, a weekly comedy club running since Feb 2014.

Johnny is a showman of the highest calibre and his hilarious views and observational comedy style is fresh, unique and a must-see!

Michael Rice began stand up comedy in Chicago where within two years he worked regularly at the most prestigious clubs in the city including The Laugh Factory, Zanies and The Comedy Bar, where he worked as Resident MC. Michael returned to Ireland in the last year due to his love of the native soil (and because his mother made him). Michael has been quickly rising in the Irish, and European scene, playing in major clubs in Dublin, Barcelona, and London, as well as taking part in the Edinburgh Fringe, and the Vodafone Comedy Carnival.
