2012 Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee bound to set a fresh pace at the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival.

If you know where Kettering is in the U.K. then you might be interested to know that the towns finest (and possibly only) comedy export, James Acaster, is heading to New Zealand with a brand new hour of comedic whimsy & engaging storytelling. He is one of a new breed of British stand-up comedian offering a fresh change of pace covering off beat topics like bread research, the Kettering football chant, the Loch Ness Monster and stealing wooden ducks...

“One of the sharpest comic minds to have emerged in recent years.” - The Guardian

His nomination for ‘Best Show’ in the 2012 Edinburgh Comedy Awards comes just 4 years after James began his comedy career in January 2008, a rapid rise to the forefront of a very competitive industry.

Acasters subtle onstage persona understated delivery has found favour with a legion of fans and UK producers resulting early wins in a number of major new face competitions before launching himself at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2009. He rounded off 2010 supporting Josie Long on a national tour, before kick-starting 2011 as the support act for Milton Jones on his UK tour for pretty much the whole year!

Most recently James has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Dave’s One Night Stand, Chris Addison’s Show and Tell (E4) and Live at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central) and toured the UK with ‘Amongst Other Things’.

“A mixed style of story-telling and philosophising that hasn't been perfected so well since possibly Daniel Kitson.” - Edinburgh Evening News
“Acaster is an undeniable and wickedly original talent” - The List.
“Delightfully whimsical, deliciously daft!” - London Evening Standard.
