As an Irish Italian Englishman, Ian believes he has the right to have a go at anyone and anything.

Massive portions of anger and self-doubt are the stuff of Cognito’s act. He is one of the best comics of the national circuit; a veteran. He clearly knows what he's doing as he spits his darkly humourous vitriol over an unsuspecting crowd. An outspoken, opinionated yet totally clued up man, Ian's take on the world will have you convinced and convulsed with laughter.

“The mad who does to comedy what Jaws does to swimming. The audience fell about. I wouldn’t like to be his enemy.” The Daily Star

“He’s dangerous, and definitely not for the mainstream, however he made the audience laugh more than anyone else on the night.” The Stage



sean percival

Black Country comic Sean Percival is an ex-welder from Dudley (“It’s a lovely place to come from but bloody horrible to go back to”) whose act is steeped in the traditions of the working mens clubs circuit, but bang up to date with its upfront attitude.  Sean’s brand of comedy steers clear of the surreal and confronts realism in an explosively funny way.

A festival favourite, he has performed at the Edinburgh, Glastonbury and Reading Festivals, and as a well established headliner he performs at all major comedy clubs around the UK as well as being a regular host for the Jongleurs comedy clubs.

In demand as a script writer, Sean works regularly with likes of Johnny Vaughan for Capital Radio.  He spent two years writing and performing on Capital fm's drive time radio show in Birmingham and for Heart fm in Birmingham, and provided the voice for "Black Country Bob" on both those shows fronted by Talk Radio's host and impressionist Ian Danter.

"Sean's comedy is the comedy of honesty. His act is the working man's revenge on the safe, middle-class, politically correct humour that has dominated comedy. Sean's humour is not surreal, it's not wacky, it's just bloody funny. This is not smile humour, this is bust your gut rubber underpants stuff"     (Joan Serone Bungalow, What's On)

"…the big gold star of the show must be the long-haired man from Dudley. He came. He spoke. He had us curled up begging for more…Sean Percival was the best heckler worrier I've seen for years…"    (Evening Mail TV)

“Absolutely brilliant – can we book him for our Christmas show please” Red Card Comedy, Norwich
