Ian Cognito, English stand-up comedian, Died at 60

Ian Cognito was born on Paul Barbieri, in 1958 and died on April 11, 2019.

He was an English stand-up comedian.

An iconoclastic performer, he was compared to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks, and Jerry Sadowitz.

However, he had never achieved success in the mainstream media, in part at least due to his reputation for being short tempered.

Cognito was the winner of the Time Out Award for Stand-up Comedy in 1999.

Ian Cognito passed away after falling ill on stage during a comedy gig in Bicester.

He died at 60 years old.
