James Acaster began performing stand up comedy in
January 2008, he has since developed into a hugely
engaging and exciting comedian, performing all over the
country and establishing himself as one of the most
exciting new acts on the circuit.
From September 2010 James will be supporting Josie Long
for the whole of her 2010 UK tour. He won Off The Kerb's
Laughing Boy New Act in June 2010 and then came 3rd in
the Latitude New Act Competition the following month

he performed as part of BBC's 'Stand Up in the Street'
during the Edinburgh festival. He has appeared on
Australian TV show 'Australia Versus' and was one of the
Co Hosts of 'My First Gig' on Resonance FM.
His set often features story telling, audience
interaction and routines about not being particularly
cool. He is from the town of Kettering but is based in
London. They are both cool in their own way.
