Nathan Caton – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2005

Review by Steve Bennett

Caton’s a slick performer with an unbeatable stage attitude and the confident air of someone much more experienced.

His powerhouse performance enlivened with skilful characterisations of the people who occupy his entertainingly observational set – from his domineering West Indian mother to the archetypal Nigerian traffic warden.

Some of his influences are obvious, most notably the Def Comedy Jam style of the black American circuit, as well as some other black British acts, which does give an air of familiarity to his set, although it is underscored with his own social comment.

But it’s his faultless, charismatic delivery that’s his biggest draw, and as he appears to be producing plenty of new material, it can only be a matter of time before his writing is equally well-honed.
