Probably the funniest bit ever about being lactose intolerant
August 8, 2012 12:43 PM   Subscribe

Help me identify an Afro-Caribbean comedian I saw on UK Comedy Central at 2 in the morning a couple of nights ago. Details about his routine inside.

The guy's bit was a story about being lactose intolerant as a child. He drank milk at school anyway so as not to be different. The milk made him sick once he was home so eventually his grandmother came to the school to have a word with the teacher.

Unfortunately I can't search backwards in Comedy Central's timetable or else this would be pretty easy.

A UK comedian? A US comedian?

If it was a US comedian, Al Jackson does an amazing lactose intolerant bit, but it's about an experience he had as an adult.

I should say "the Al Jackson bit I know is about lactose intolerance as an adult" but maybe he has talked about it in childhood as well. Hope that makes more sense.

Al Jackson looks funny but the guy I'm thinking about has dreadlocks or plaited hair, about shoulder length. He also has a Caribbean accent, maybe Jamaican, maybe Bajan, or Bahamian I'm not sure. I'd guess he's probably British.

The guy you're looking for is Nathan Caton I think.
I saw him do that act a couple of years ago in a teeny tiny comedy club, before he was famous. Now he's everywhere on TV here.
