Monday 4th – Saturday 9th November 2013 Soho Theatre, London
“Beautifully constructed “art of stand-up” stuff from the young comic. In years to come, this show will be taught in schools as the perfect how-to example” - The Sunday Times
Following his exceptional guest appearance on BBC Two’s Never Mind the Buzzcocks and his Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award-Best Show nomination for Lawnmower – James Acaster’s critically acclaimed, sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show is coming to Soho Theatreon Monday 4th November - 9th November 2013.
Promising to bring more low-key stand-up, whimsical anecdotes and playful wit; James will tell you how he’s attempting to clear Yoko Ono’s name, why he continues to dress head to toe in Marks & Spencer and the manifold reasons why he’s obsessed with Mariachi music.
Since performing his critically acclaimed, first Edinburgh Solo show ‘Amongst Other Things’ in 2011, he has gone on to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival year-on-year and has received nominations for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2012 & 2013, as well as a New Zealand International Comedy Festival nomination for Best International Show. As well as appearing on stage, James recently recorded ‘James Acaster’s Findings’ for BBC Radio 4 and makes regular appearances on XFM’s, ‘The Josh Widdicombe Show’. James has also made a number of television appearances including, Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC Three), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave), Show and Tell (E4), Live at The Comedy Store (Paramount) and the Edinburgh Fest Comedy Gala (BBC Three).
