Nathan Caton - Breakfast at Stephanie's

Tall, skinny and full of nervous energy, West Londoner Nathan Caton is here to entertain us with an hour of laughs. The 'Stephanie' name-checked in the show's title is his West-Indies granny who takes him to task for chucking a career in architecture in favour of stand-up.He keeps us chuckling away for the duration of the show with tales of his family life, dominated by the matriarchal granny and his pot-head cousin Kevin. He looks to be enjoying himself greatly on stage, and this helps build rapport with the audience as he nicely toys with our expectations, setting up a gag and then twisting it at the last minute for an unexpected and much funnier punch line than the one we'd anticipated.He has a great final sketch about a misinterpreted trip to his GP which had the audience laughing so much that he had to calm us down before being able to progress.Happily it becomes clear early in the show that granny is utterly wrong, and Nathan does indeed have a great career ahead of him in comedy. These are still early days for him, and he's clearly going to build on the great work he's already doing, so catch him here at the Pleasance Courtyard and you can say that you saw him before he got big and famous!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
