AFTER being banned from more comedy clubs than any other, one of the country's most popular controversial comedians is bringing his unique brand of stand up to Stourbridge.

Ian Cognito has been an undecorated hero of the British comedy frontline for the past three decades, but he will be entertaining the crowds at the monthly Kum-n-avaloff Comedy Night when it returns on Thursday, September 7.

The controversial comic will be joined on the bill at Stourbridge Town Hall’s Wollaston Studio by top up-and-coming stand-up Morgan Rees – a recent finalist in BBC’s New Comedy Award – as well as Pat Gallagher, and MC Aaron Twitchen.
