Comic Ian Cognito appeared on Thursday at Atic Bar in the south of the United Kingdom when he suddenly sat on a chair with his head and hands.

One of the assistants in the show, John Ostojak, told the BBC that "only 10 minutes before (Cognito) sat, joked about the spill."

"He said:" Imagine that you have a spill and wake up in the Welsh, "Ostojak said.

Lecturer Bar, Andrew Bird, added that Cognito also said, "Imagine if I die before all of you."

After the comedian was unconscious, members of the public thought that their gestures were "part of the work" and continued to laugh.

After about five minutes, people began to worry.

"I'm sorry about the news about Ian Cognit, I was with him several times, and he was always a fascinating and funny company, RIP Cogs," announced British comedian Katy Brand on Friday.

Bird stepped onto the stage and saw if his partner was fine.

"Everyone, including me, thought they were joking," he said. "Even when I touched his hand, I expected him to say" boo. ""

But Cognito did not respond, and Bird was called by an ambulance.

Meanwhile, two nurses, who were in the audience, began to perform compression of the chest.

When the Rescue Service of the Southern United Kingdom Center arrived to take care of Cognita, she died on the scene.

The cause of the comedian's death was not disclosed.

"Real Comedian"

As Bird says, Cognito did not feel well before the show, but he insisted on going to the stage.

"He was like his usual self, with his strong voice. (When I looked at him) I thought he worked well," he said.

"I just heard about Ian Cognit, I saw him on the stage a few years ago, and he was surprised, he was both epic and his reputation Rebellious and brilliant, I heard that he died when he was on the stage. Legend: Very soon I will send your love for your family, "wrote comedian Luisa Omielan on Friday.

Ostojak also said that the comedian did a "very good performance" and that people felt very bad.

"We sat there for five minutes and watched him, laughing at him," he complained.

His fellow comedians described him as a "real comedian" and emphasized his support for other promising comicants.

British comedian and author Shappi Khorsandi said that her death was "a very sad blow" and that Cognito was "one of the people who made the comedy brilliant."

Cognito, whose real name was Paul Barbieri, was born in 1958 in London.

He has been working since the mid-1980s and was well respected in the comedy circle.

He lived in Bristol, and in 1999 he received the Comedy Time Out Award, which was awarded by the Out Out magazine until 2006.
