Funhouse Comedy Club: Nathan Caton, Gareth Richards, Keith Platt, Diane Spencer
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly obsevational, influenced by his culture and upbringing, and also coming from a young person's outlook on life, from the well-known Nigerian traffic warden and the always-disciplining West-Indian mother, to MTV's Pimp my Ride.
'Excellent story-telling skills keep the crowd easily entertained' (Three Weeks)
‘Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene’ (Fest Magazine)
'Caton's a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced' (Chortle)
'Compelling, well-observed stand-up... He specialises in laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media' (The Guardian)
'A huge star in the near future’ (http://www.one4review.com).

Previously he was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2007 competition, and a runner-up in the finals of You Must Be Joking and the Amused Moose Laugh-Off.
'Gorgeously low-key, faintly surreal songs played on the Omnichord... A delightful hour of comedy' (The Guardian)
'He’s a quietly clever craftsman with a big future' (Bruce Dessau, The Evening
'An effortlessly assured act... exceptionally inspired and truly memorable... His material has a delicious otherworldly quality' (Chortle).
