Ian Cognito has been compared to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks and Gerry Sadowitz. Winner of the Time Out Stand Up Comedy Performance Award 1999. He has been excluded from many venues because of his onstage antics.
Outspoken, opinionated and totally clued up, Ian Cognito's take on the world will have you convinced and convulsed (with laughter) as he spits his darkly humorous vitriol over an unsuspecting crowd.
'If you want to know what's wrong with New Britain, Ian Cognito's going to tell you. And if you don't, you'd better keep your mouth shut. Just stunning' (The Guardian)
'This electrifying, terrifying and ultimately vulnerable performer warmed a cold Glasgow audience to boiling point. Stand up should always be like this' (The List)
'First time I saw Cognito I was blown away. I was blown away the second time too. Third time I thought I could do that' (Reginald D Hunter).

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.

John Hastings is a comedian who has performed all over America, Canada and all the small scary corners of the United Kingdom.
Since moving to the UK in 2012 from Canada John Hastings is very much in demand from the top comedy venues, entertaining audiences with his sharp punchlines delivered through his observational storytelling style. He is an Amused Moose Comedy Award-nominated comedian.
'Shockingly good' (Montreal Gazette)
'A strong calling card from a thoughtful and observant comic with enjoyably wry sensibilities... we're in the hands of an appealing consummate pro' (Chortle)
'He was fast, polished and had an original slant. We will hear more of him' (http://www.BroadwayBaby.com)
'Particularly awesome' (San Francisco Examiner).
John Hastings tour dates
Laughing Horse New Act Of The Year winner. Winner 2014 Chortle Awards Best Newcomer.
'Warm, accessible but in no way bland, Hagen delighted the crowd with personal tales and observations. Her skill becomes all the more apparent when looking at her silences as well as her writing, her timing is spot-on and pauses, facial expressions and knowing nods and smiles all combine to make an act who is destined to make a name for herself' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Hagen is hilarious' (The Skinny)
'Hagen's act sharply pokes fun at British words and phrases and she's not afraid switch to bleaker, more contentious subject matter' (http://TimeOut.co.uk).
