Quote:Veteran comedian Ian Cognito jokes about dying before dropping dead onstage

Quote: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."

Nothing like being able to die while doing what you loved to do in life.
