Nathan is a young black British comic, gigging on both the mainstream and black comedy circuit. His set is highly observational, 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.

He was nominated for the NZ Comedy Guild Award as Best International Artist 2014. 'The crowd fell for his dry, witty, confused little boy mutt-schtick in a big way' (The Observer) 'Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy' (The List) 'Birdman cuts a dashing figure, elegant, smart, theatrical. A hugely entertaining hour of thoughtful, heartfelt, mature comedy, performed with great energy and dynamism... Engagingly mixes the silly and the downright wrong' (Chortle) '... already on his way up...' (Time Out) 'Second to none' (Adelaide Advertiser) 'Infectious, likeable and popular... A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny' (The Stage).
