Cole Parker

"Quite simply, the finest alternative comedian there is" Ian Cognito

"Consistently funny…." The Independent

"Wonderful, upfront, hilarious…'" Evening Standard

Comedian, actor, writer and presenter, Cole Parker exploded onto the comedy circuit in 2000, to great critical acclaim. In the same year he was nominated the UK's best new comedian. Cole now regularly plays the premier comedy clubs throughout the UK & overseas and has earned an enviable reputation as a highly original, crowd-pleasing comic and compere. His intelligent - occasionally dark material, is delivered with generous spoonfuls of charm and he can relate to any audience.

On television Cole recently presented 15 episodes of 'The Ultimate Gambler' for Bravo Television, which sold to 24 countries worldwide and he can currently be seen on Sky Sports as the face of the 2010 International Cricket.

On radio Cole has co-presented a music show with Craig Charles for BBC Radio 6 and appeared as a guest on XFM, BBC London, LBC and BBC Kent. He also performed in BBC 7's 'Spanking New'.

A knowledgeable and passionate music fan, Cole has hosted 'Jersey LIVE!' for four years since its inception in 2003 - performing alongside the cream of the British and international A -list music industry. Having a massive bank of material and being able to relate to a wide demographic has made Cole a popular and regular festival fixture. He has compered the Reading festival for an unprecedented three years running and also played the Glastonbury, Leeds, Edinburgh, Bugjam and Big Chill festivals.

A prolific writer: Cole has four television shows currently in development. He has also written for several top name comedians & played alongside: Harry Hill, Jonny Vegas, Ardal O'Hanlon, Ed Byrne, Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr, Jeff Green, Craig Charles, Al Murray & Ross Noble.

As an actor Cole has played an assortment of 'straight' roles, including appearances in The Bill (ITV), Eastenders (BBC 1) and The Buddha of Suburbia (BBC1). Feature films include Roman Polanski 'She's Been Away' and theatrical productions include 'Midsummer Nights Dream' in Holland Park.

Before pursuing his lifelong interest in comedy, Cole worked for five years in the casino business. He was recognised as one of the UK's best dealers and became the first UK croupier to learn Caribbean stud poker. He worked in many of the top casinos in London & Israel and on cruise ships all around the USA, South America, Caribbean & Bahamas.
