For The Weekend
with NATHAN CATON

plus guests

"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 has been active on the UK comedy circuit since the tender age of 19. He excels in combining both personal, confessional material with up-to-date social and political anecdotes. This has won him numerous credits and plaudits over the years and has made him one of the hottest rising young stars on the circuit.

Nathan started comedy while studying architecture at University and within his first full year of gigging he had built up a solid reputation having performed at the Edinburgh Festival, winning the award for Chortle Student Comic of the Year.

Caton’s first Edinburgh show in 2009 entitled Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ got him rave reviews from critics including The Guardian, EdFest and Three Weeks and earned him guest writing spots with BBC Radio. His debut Edinburgh show was then followed up with ‘Breakfast At Stephanie’s’ and ‘Get Rich Or Die Cryin’, the latter which became Caton’s debut solo tour show.

"Caton is probably the most exciting young black comic on the scene." Fest

"More than material, presentation is Caton’s strongest suit and he’s confident, charismatic and upbeat." Chortle
