Stand-up comedian Ian Cognito has passed away after reportedly suffering a heart attack on stage. The comic died on stage while performing at the Lone Wolf Comedy Club in The Atic bar in Bicester on Thursday night. According to YouTube TV Española 24/7, Cognito sat on a chair and ‘laid back for five minutes’, with audience members unaware that he had fallen ill, assuming it was part of the act. An ambulance rushed to the venue, where he was pronounced dead at the scene. The audience was asked to leave as staff performed chest compressions on Cognito. John Ostojak, who was at the gig, told YouTube TV Española 24/7: ‘We thought it was part of the act.

We came out feeling really sick, we just sat there for five minutes watching him, laughing at him.’ He added that 10 minutes before he sat down, Cognito had joked about having a stroke. Fellow comedians and fans have taken to social media to pay tribute to Cognito, who won the Time Out Award for stand-up comedy in 1999. Rufus Hound tweeted: ‘Ian Cognito has died. That might not mean much to you if your knowledge of stand-up only extends to a screen but for anyone who ever sat down in a comedy club and saw him on a stage – this is a hard one. ‘Puck grew up and now Puck is dead. We have lost one of the greats.

Shappi Khorsandi wrote: ‘Such a sad shock. Ian Cognito has died. One of the people who made this job brilliant from the very beginning has gone. I got so excited to be on bills with him and watch him work and have a beer after. And those eyes! Those beautiful eyes. Much love to all friends and family.’ The Chase’s Paul Sinha tweeted: ‘Saddened by the news of the passing of Ian Cognito, an inspirationally skilled comedian, whose fearlessness less brave comedians like myself deeply envied. A gentleman. A terrifying gentleman.’ While the Glee Club Birmingham tweeted: ‘We’re all very sad to hear of the passing of the legendary Ian Cognito. He was original, always hilarious, sometimes offensive and the true definition of “one of a kind”. R.I.P Cogs.’

And Mitch Benn claimed that the London-born comic looked better than ever when he last saw him, adding that he had been receiving ‘treatment’ and was 18 months sober. He shared: ‘Just heard about Ian Cognito. Known him 25 years. Saw him a month ago; looked better than I’d seen him in years. He was 18 months sober and in treatment. ‘This feels so unfair. He’d never forgive me if I didn’t swear at this so WHAT YOU FUCKING DO THAT FOR, COGS YOU’ Cognito often declared himself as the ‘undecorated hero of the British comedy frontline’, having never appeared on TV during his 30 year career, and was known for his outrageous routines.
