15.05.22 - Review for Observational on the Brighton Fringe from Seagull News 'Nathan Cassidy proves once again that he’s one of the funniest comedians in the game with his show, Observational. His wordplay and fast, slick jokes are impeccable... suddenly they culminate in the best ending I’ve seen to a comedy set possibly ever... He is a true talent, a genuinely naturally funny man, and to not see him is to miss out on something very special.'
11.05.22 - Review for Observational from Fringe Review 'Well-crafted, very original and very funny… one of the most original show endings I have seen. Clever, articulate… sometime scathing and cynical, but also touching and hopeful. Highly recommended.’

17.08.21 Bumblebee review - “Comic, and semi-tragic, memories from childhood are blended with a Charlie Brooker style take down of the villains of politics, economics and social media, from the last 12 months. For a stand up to create something which united the entire audience in laughter, oozed pathos, and in an almost tangible sense ‘connected’ the whole room, and for it to have been written in the isolation of a post-burgled house is no mean feat and testament to a very exciting talent indeed.” Mumble Comedy

A great comedian. His rapport with the audience is instant and constant… Nathan Cassidy seems like becoming a firm favourite
