Cokey Falkow’s Background

Since starting in the late 90s, Cokey Falkow established himself as one of South Africa’s edgier stand-up acts. Appearing at a wide variety of clubs and numerous international comedy festivals, he gathered a cult following. This led to 3 national one-man tours for which Cokey received critical acclaim at Grahamstown National Arts Festival.

Cokey was then flown to London to perform in the South African Comedy Festival in London which ran at the Riverside studio theatre in Hammersmith for 5 weeks. Cokey also produced international comedy festivals in his home town of Durban where he introduced Russell Peters to South Africa.

As his stand-up progressed so too did Cokey’s television career. After a number of appearances on local soaps and sitcoms he went on to host ‘Big City,’ a magazine style, primetime show for which Cokey won a best presenting award (Avanti Award – SA’s equivalent of an Emmy/BAFTA). He also picked up award nominations for co-writing and starring in the country’s cult late nite hit comedy sketch program The Pure Monate Show, including ‘Best Ensemble Cast’ and ‘Best Writing in a Comedy Series’.

Cokey has worked extensively filming both worldwide commercial campaigns and a wide array of supporting roles in international film. In 2008 he was nominated as best supporting actor in a feature film (SAFTA’s 09) for his role as “Alfonso “ the ginger albino serial killer in quirky South African comedy “Big Fellas.” After appearing in Starship Troopers and NCIS, Cokey is now best known internationally for his role as El Aleman in Robert Rodriguez and Robert Orci’s Matador.

After 6 years in the US, where he played The Comedy Store regularly and was well known on the improv circuit, Cokey moved from LA to the UK in late 2014 and is hitting the UK comedy circuit hard in 2015.
