James Acaster is a stand up comedian from Kettering, now based in London, who stormed on to the scene in 2009 when he appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe. He went on to support Josie Long on tour a year later, and Milton Jones in 2011.
His first solo show in Edinburgh took place in 2012, called 'Among Other Things', which eventually turned into a UK tour. He then toured 'Prompt' in 2012 to positive reviews and a nomination from the Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards for best comedy show at the festival in 2012.
A whimsical master, he has received acclaim from around the world, including a record breaking 5 consecutive nominations for Best Comedy Show at the 2012 - 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, winning the 2015 Chortle Award for Best Show, and Best International Show Award at the 2014 New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
As well as his glowing stand-up career, Acaster is a regular on television and radio comedy shows, alongside many of his own projects.
