With a wonderfully relaxed style, the Fosters award nominee tells stories about everyday trivia, how his dad lied to him as a child, what Romans would have made of texting, and safari parks with no lions (due to strong winds). The Standard have described him as ‘delightfully whimsical and deliciously daft.’


James Acaster is a new Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated stand-up quickly making an impression on the live circuit and acclaimed as one of the most naturally gifted new comedians around.

With a keen but laid-back style, James delivers quirky reflections combined with flights of fancy and self-deprecating observations. He explains why Pancake Day excites him so much, the awkward etiquette of sharing a platonic bed with another man and his research on bread involving humans and ducks. ‘Delightfully whimsical and deliciously daft’ as the Evening Standard described him.
