In 1999, Cognito won a Time Out Award for comedy.
Banned from more than a dozen comedy clubs because of his irascible behaviour, Cognito delights in playing with audience's sensibilities. He'll win cheers with an emotive speech against domestic violence - then puncture it with a lengthy dance to a Darius Danesh hit in his crotchless lime harlequin costume.
His autobiography appeared on Kindle in 2013, billed as "the best book about comedy I have ever writ".
