Daniel Cook: Carpet

Daniel Cook: Carpet

Watching Daniel Cook run wildly around Pleasance’s Bunker Two, three things are clear: 1. He’s really, really funny; 2. He knows who he is as a performer; and 3. He really likes his sky blue trainers. Telling the story of his feline companion Carpet (yes, that is the actual name of the cat), Cook takes us on a funny little journey that avoids so many classic Fringe stand up landmines…
