Multi-Award winning funnyman Wild beast of comedy controversial mad man IAN COGNITO Ian Cognito delivered a performance with all the presence, clarity and direction of a true virtuoso player. This electrifying, terrifying and ultimately vulnerable performer warmed a cold Glasgow audience to boiling point. Stand up should always be like this" - The List" Cognito’s indignant polemic is a bracing antidote to more amiable routines. When a comedian can transform rage into humour without diluting their passion, the result is always riveting. Share his inspired madness" - The Guardian"Cognito puts them all in the shade. 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 be advised to keep your mouth shut. Just stunning" - The Guardian If messed up comedians are the most interesting, Ian Cognito is up there with the greats. He rants but not without thought. How is the comeback going? Very nastily, thanks" - The Evening Standard" After half an hour in the company of the constantly self-excoriating Cognito, all other comedians begin to seem like people in public relations." - The Evening Standard Cognito is still hard to ignore, a raging bull goaded by a flaming sense of injustice." - The Independent"There is no doubting Ian Cognito’s blazing talent as a stand up, but his capacity for self destruction has ensured he’s never gained the recognition or status he’d otherwise have so effortlessly claimed. You know Cognito will never prostitute what he does just to play the game, he is a comedian through and through." - Time Out
classy comedy magician STEVE PRICE Steve's passion for performing began at the age of ten when his parents gave him an Ali Bongo Book of Magic for his birthday. From that moment, he knew he wanted to be an entertainer… In August 2005, Steve became a full-time magician. He joined the world-famous Magic Circle and gained invaluable experience in those early years by performing for churches and Christian groups across the UK. He quickly expanded his range of work to include theatres, restaurants, football stadiums, playing fields, boats and even cathedrals. In 2011, Steve became The Magic Circle’s Honorary Secretary. He remained in that role for three years, looking after the interests of 1,500 members worldwide. He was forced to step down, however, when he began to be invited to perform regularly on cruise ships. These bookings meant that he was out of the country for long periods at a time, making it impractical to continue serving The Magic Circle in such an active way. Steve’s magical skills have taken him to the Costa del Sol, Majorca, the Algarve, Cyprus, Ibiza, Barcelona, the Canary Islands, Russia, the East Coast of America, the Caribbean, Cuba, Venice, Norway, Spain and France. A versatile, globe-trotting magician, Steve now balances his time performing for private clients around Europe, at public events, and on cruise liner
