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.
Nathan Caton tour dates
A comedian from Toronto who was voted 'Best Newcomer' at the Canadian Comedy Awards and has appeared in the UK on Russell Howard's Good News, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Hour, Sweat the Small Stuff and Virtually Famous.
He is also a 3rd cousin of Canadian pop-star Justin Bieber - although he claims that they have never met.
'Mair exudes a kind of effortless, awkwardness and brings to it something fresh and downright disturbing. A bright, dark future surely awaits' (The Stage)
'He's either going to be a huge international comedy star or the funniest homeless man ever' (Jimmy Carr).
Bobby Mair tour dates
You'll hear many descriptions of Nick Sun; from erratic, acidic, confrontational, surreal and subversive, but these all become seemingly pointless when you let him loose on a stage. His approach to comedy is unlike anything you're likely to have seen before. A man confused and jaded with the comedy world.
'If you don't like Nick Sun, you suck at being an audience' - Doug Stanhope.
Nick Sun tour dates
Extremely distinctive comedy from a former London solicitor.
'Posh and witty... exquisitely funny... one of the new comics making waves' (Time Out)
'His comedy is intelligent and so up-to-date it could be read by Jon Snow' (Cream of
'There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade... Andrew Watts is so engaging, so entertaining and so persuasive that we are all sad when his clever, personal and very funny hour comes to an end' (The Scotsman)
'His distinctive style stands out – a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance' (Chortle)
'Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show' (Three Weeks).
Andrew Watts tour dates
Paul has a very energetic, highly interactive and yet slightly surreal brand of humour is starting to create a real buzz around the comedy circuit.
'Fantastic. I was laughing every 15 seconds' (Sol Bernstein aka Steve Jamieson).
Paul T Eyres tour dates
