“A comedy genius at the peak of his powers. ★★★★★”

The Guardian (UK)

One time, James bought a lasagne from the supermarket, heated it up in the oven and ate a bit of it and it wasn’t very nice so he put it in the fridge because it felt wrong to dump a whole lasagne in the bin and then later on he ate a spoonful of the cold lasagne because he was drunk and it was absolutely delicious.

Come and catch the masterful James Acaster in this critically-acclaimed hour, where he reflects on the best year of his life and the worst year of his life.

With intricate, personal storytelling and polished writing, James reaches new heights of pitch-perfect stand-up. His previous three shows (Recognise, Representand Reset) and Recap formed his four-part Netflix series, Repertoire, making him the first UK comic to shoot more than one Netflix Original special. He has also been seen on US TV’s Late Late Show with James Corden and Conan. Don’t miss the five-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee at the top of his game!
