In memory of
Ian Cognito
Ian Cognito was a British stand-up comic who was compared to Lenny Bruce and Bill Hicks. He died while performing his stand-up routine on stage at The Atic Bar in Bicester. Cognito felt ill before taking the stage and joked about having a stroke, after five minutes of his act, he sat silent on his stool and audience members thought it was part of his routine. Realizing it was serious, promoter Andrew Bird and others rushed to his aid. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Coginito, whose real name was Paul Barbieri, had been performing since the 1980s. Bird said dying on stage was how the comic, “would have wanted to go, except he’d want more money and a bigger venue.” We invite you to share condolences for Ian Cognito in our Guest Book.
