The Funny Side... of Covent Garden: Nathan Caton, Edward Aczel, Mark Maier, Gareth Kane
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).
Nathan Caton tour dates
Edward Aczel began performing stand-up comedy in 2005 at the age of 38. By the end of that year he was the runner-up in both the prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and in Jimmy Carr's Comedy Idol (which was filmed for the extras on Jimmy Carr's 2005 live DVD).
He is now a regular headliner on the comedy circuit and by 2014 had performed six solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
'One of the strangest, and finest, hours of live comedy I'd ever seen' (Zadie Smith, The New Yorker)
'Perhaps Britain's greatest living anti-comedian' (The Guardian)
'Genius anti-comic Aczel is a superb pleasure to watch, and very much a cult in the making' (Time Out).
Edward Aczel tour dates
Top comedian who, apart from his regular spots at The Improv and The Comedy Store, has performed all over the world. In 1996 he took his critically acclaimed one-man show, 'Get Off With Mark Maier', to Edinburgh where it garnered much further praise.
‘It's high time someone gave him a TV show of his own!' (The Guardian).
