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. Shit.

A sad day for comics today. The great Ian Cognito passed away last night. All of us Bristol and West Comics were very lucky to have him living in this part of the world. One the most charismatic performers and men (most of the time) I ever met
