James Acaster: Classic Scrapes

“There’s no one better at constructing a show than Acaster” – Guardian

James Acaster is releasing his first ever book this year, James Acaster’s Classic Scrapes, which is going to be a collection of self-deprecating anecdotes about scrapes James has gotten himself into over the years, famed from the slot of the same name on Josh Widdicombe’s XFM radio show.

Publishers Headline say: ‘Unfortunately for James, fame and critical acclaim haven’t prevented him from ending up in a breathtaking amount of farcical misadventures. From having to hide in a bush outside Basingstoke station overnight wearing a bright red dress, to drunkenly incurring the wrath of night bus lads, to being the only person in history to get “cabbaged” by a child, James apparently lives his life in a perpetual sitcom.’

Acaster, who has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times in a row, said: ‘I have lived an extremely blessed life save for enough awful/stupid experiences to fill a book with and so I thought it only fair to fill a book with them.’

Come along and see him read sneak peaks from the book.

 

Robin Ince: Pragmatic Insanity

Robin Ince; co-star of the acclaimed ‘Infinite Monkey Cage’ and fresh from a huge world arena tour with Brian Cox returns to York with his brand new show!

In April 2015, Robin Ince announced that he really had to stop doing stand-up as he was on the cusp of insanity. Audiences disagreed, believing he’d breached that cusp long ago. After spending 18 months touring with Professor Brian Cox and writing his new book, I’m A Joke… and So Are You, he realised it was time to start the trepanning again and returns with a new show. Inspired by Philip K Dick, Kurt Vonnegut and others, expect stories of aggressive kindness, rabies and death. ‘Bursting with energy and ideas’ **** (Times).
