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.

Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason Cook takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind capable of taking an unsuspecting audience to places they didn't want to go. Dwarves, newspaper vendors, the toilets at raves, true-to-life stories that drag you in and won't let go. Cook is close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that'll have you laughing in spite of yourself. 'A wonderfully life-affirming, beautifully crafted, total and utter joy. My jaw aches from laughing' (Time Out) 'Few people have his warmth and spontaneity; it's an act you'd gladly watch again and again' (The Skinny).
