About The Comedians

Happy Cole

Happy Cole began his stand-up career in Tampa, Florida. His high-energy delivery and fast-paced humor have long made him a favorite at comedy clubs, colleges, corporate events and on cruise ships.

Cole got a big break when he was invited to perform at the Montreal International Comedy Festival “Just for Laughs”, now considered the biggest, most prestigious comedy festival in the world. His appearances there were so triumphant and stellar that the Montreal Gazette cited Happy as one of the “standouts in the best jokefest ever.”

Moreover, his success at the Festival drew the attention of all kinds of major figures in the entertainment industry, including the producers of “Black is…” an award-winning CBC documentary series. This led to appearances on such U.S. television shows at NBC’s Friday Night Lights and the nationally syndicated “Showtime at the Apollo.” It also led to an invitation to perform at the Murphy’s Cat Laugh Festival in Kilkenny, Ireland hosted by Bill Murray.

Among Happy’s other television credits are the ACE Award-winning, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, Comic Strip Live, Evening at the Improv, and Comedy on the Road. In addition to these and other stand-up programs, he has also accumulated TV credits as an actor, including a recurring role on Nickelodeon’s, Clarissa Explains it All and Fox’s Sea Quest.
