Ray Cokes

MTV-Ikone I Host I Speaker | Live on Tour

MTV- & Medienikone

Ray Cokes, the man who revolutionized music television, is currently living in Berlin and working throughout Europe across the full range of media. As a host of MTV, he became a modern television icon. He later hosted TV shows in England, Belgium and France. Whatever he does – Ray Cokes is always memorable. Full of emotion, passion and always looking for new ideas. He himself claims: „I was an oddball, but an entertaining one“. We say, „He was never an oddball, just always ahead of the curve and always something special.“ But he is more entertaining than ever, whether as host of TV, radio and corporate events or as a keynote speaker and beginning in 2022 live on tour again with his one-man-show „A NEW WORLD OLDER“.

HOST - TV & LIVE

Ray Cokes hosts international conferences, conventions and corporate events. Ray Cokes is not only a gifted host and interviewer, but thanks to his vast media experience and his incredible stories, he can add a considerable amount of media glamour to any event. The events don’t necessarily need to be media-related. Ray Cokes can speak on any topic, dive into (almost) any subject and is unfailingly a high-profile face with a tremendous story to tell. He’s a real people person who loves hosting and conducting candid interviews. He speaks English and French fluently, and bits and pieces of very funny German and Spanish.

Live on Tour "a New world older"

Ray says of himself, „I can’t do anything right, but I can talk about everything.“ He’ll be proving that again, in public, in the fall of 2022 when he begins touring Europe with his one-man show. One man, but not alone, because he’ll have his audience to talk to. With them he’ll talk about all the big and small issues of the world. Either by interacting with the audience, as he so loves to do, or with possible surprise guests, or by spinning Wheel of Life for random topics. But Ray wouldn’t be Cokes if he didn’t bring along some videos as well.
German premiere is in the fall of 2022 as part of the Cologne Comedy Festival. For inquiries please contact us quickly…
