    Veteran comedian Ian Cognito jokes about dying before dropping dead onstage



    British stand-up comedian Ian Cognito has died onstage during a gig, only minutes after joking about having a stroke.

    Key points:

    • Mr Cognito had joked before his death saying: "Imagine if I died in front of you lot here."
    • One audience member said they left feeling sick, after the crowd assumed it was part of the show and kept laughing
    • Fellow comedians took to twitter to send their condolences


    The 60-year-old sat down on a stool while breathing heavily in the middle of his set, before dying.
    South Central Ambulance Service said medics were called to a club in southern England but "sadly one patient passed away at the scene".

    Show organiser Andrew Bird told the BBC the crowd at the Atic bar in Bicester had thought it was a joke, and continued to laugh.
    When Cognito sat down and fell silent, "everyone in the crowd, me included, thought he was joking", he said.
    "He was like his old self, his voice was loud. I was thinking, 'He's having such a good gig'."

    Mr Bird said Cognito had even joked about his health during his set, telling the audience: "Imagine if I died in front of you lot here."
    Audience member John Ostojak told the BBC: "Only 10 minutes before he sat down he joked about having a stroke."
    "He said, 'Imagine having a stroke and waking up speaking Welsh'.

    "We came out feeling really sick, we just sat there for five minutes watching him, laughing at him."
    Cognito, whose real name was Paul Barbieri, never achieved wide fame but was highly respected among fellow comedians.

    Don't think that's really deserving of สมน้ำหน้า, to be honest.


    Tommy Cooper did the original.

    How would you have, in Thai, described it?

    Hansum maaaannn. Ohhhhh, die laooo.


    I'm not sure that he deserved to die, just because he made a joke about it a few minutes before. I guess you don't really know what the phrase means.

    Why would an Australian want to describe the death of a Brit in Thai on an English web forum aimed at foreigners?

    To show that they know Thai.


    Or in this case, that they don't.

    Well yeah, but also...

    We often get asked "I'm black, can I still post?" The answer is "yes" TeakDoor welcomes members of any creed or colour.


    "Can I post if I'm gay?" The answer is "yes". Teakdoor welcomes members of any sexual preference.


    "I'm heterosexual, a prolific poster and live in Bournemouth, can I post?" No, fuck off.

    You're right, but if it was a Thai comedian, one of the "chimps" as you describe Thai people, what then?

    1940s (originally US): probably imitating a turkey's gobble
    I'd have guessed it originated in Vietnam or Thailand by an Ameeican like Norton, Davis or Boon Me whilst deepthroating one of the locals

    ^ Lucky it's not a spilt (spilled for the English Teachers amongst us) beer worth then.

    I hate it when I spill my beer
