'Dr George Ryegold has, I am delighted to report, lost none of his dyspeptic misanthropy... he is not so much close to the bone as shaving slices off it. But trust him, he is a doctor. Go and be roundly abused by Doctor George – you’ll feel better for it' (The Scotsman)
'Tremendous fun... it's stuff like this that makes the fringe great' (Three Weeks)
'Lashings of gallows humour... beautifully crafted' (The Stage)
'Wicked...twisted...deliciously dark' (Time Out)
'...as sick as Jim Jeffries, but with the vocabulary of Stephen Fry...some of the most hilariously bad-taste lines of the festival' (Chortle).
George Ryegold aka Toby Williams tour dates
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).
Nathan Caton was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
