Nathan Caton


Multi award-winning comedian 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.

He 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, finishing as a runner-up in theAmused Moose Comedy Search and winning the awardfor Chortle Student Comic of the Year.

In 2006 he continued gigging and was rewarded with a nomination for Best Newcomer, at the Black Entertainment Comedy Awards, and made his first TV appearances on Richard Hammond’s 5 o’clock show andLittle Miss Joycelyn, amongst other radio work.

In 2007 Caton appeared on ITV2’s Comedy Cuts, returned to the Edinburgh Festival to perform in a two-man show, and in October 2007 he got his biggest break when his debut comedy pilot The Nathan Caton Showaired on Paramount Television. Caton wrote and starred in the 30-minute show where he guised as different comedy characters and this earned him a Hotshot awardfrom Broadcast magazine for his writing.

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.

After doing his second Edinburgh show entitled Breakfast At Stephanie’s to similar praise Nathan is continuing to gig up and down the country and is also working on a pilot for BBC Radio 4.
