"Old whippersnapper and worryingly funny. Frankly I hope he stops doing comedy before he costs me work"
“Stephen Cookson has some of the finest crafted one-liners on the circuit today. He also possesses a finely tuned comic timing way beyond his experience as a newer comic"
“Deadpan one-liners that were perfectly executed and written. Had one lady hyperventilating and begging for him to stop. The quality of this man’s gags are up there with Milton Jones and Gary Delaney”
Bryan Malcolm (The Haha Club)
