For the last three decades Ian Cognito has been an undecorated hero of the British comedy frontline. Never been on the telly, never done an advert, ‘Cogs’ remains a true original. Whilst many of his peers have graduated to the cosy confines of light entertainment, Cogs proudly remains one of the country’s most seminal acts.
Andre Vincent was born May 1964 in Woolworth’s Department Store Penge, and has not stopped appearing in the most unusual of places since. A new chapter opened in his life after visiting an Orlando comedy club and deciding to give it a go. The pinnacle of this journey was opening for Bob Hope in Columbus, Ohio in 1992. With his head swelling and his tongue tripping one-liners, he returned home to conquer the comedy circuit of the U.K., and in no time at all established himself as one of the top stand-ups in the country today.
