I was born in Bristol and have lived here for most of my life. Professional actor since 2004.
“All three performers excel here… Gerard Cooke does his best work this reviewer has seen as James, a febrile, frightened creature who has been trying to suppress his own gifts and the dark memories they bring back.”
THE DARKROOM – Theatre West. Venue Magazine
“The four-strong cast – all on top form here – ensure that each of these variously delusional and in-denial characters comes fully to life …
Gerard Cooke portrays Rupert as a boy-man who, like a fly that’s fallen into a jar of jam, struggles to escape his claustrophobic family” ****
WATER’S NOT SO THICK – Butterfly Psyche Theatre. Venue Magazine
“a piece of tender parody in which what could have been a paranoid, on-the-run escapee from an early Pinter play … (played by) local pro stalwart Gerard Cooke … pitched up in the strange world of the Eighth Day Adventists Of The Wind” ****
THE 24 HOUR PLAYS – Theatre Royal Bath. Venue Magazine
“The colourful character of Whit played by Gerard Cooke was skilfully drawn”
OF MICE AND MEN – Playing Up Theatre Company. The Bath Chronicle.
“Excellently performed by Gerard Cooke”
THE HIGHER GROUND – Stroud Theatre Company. thisisgloucestershire.co.uk
“The Belch-centred sub-plot dominates – thanks to snappy interaction between Belch, Maria, Feste
and Gerard Cooke’s long-wristed, ‘Mr Bean’-recalling Aguecheek”
TWELFTH NIGHT – RoughHouse Theatre. Venue Magazine.
“All the actors performed brilliantly, but I would like to commend the very talented Gerard Cooke, who appeared as a bereaved son in a carpet shop, a Victorian railway labourer, and a washing machine – in a performance seen to be believed!”
