Never miss another 'James Acaster' show
Outside The Box Comedy Club: James Acaster, Ivo Graham, Maff Brown
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Effortlessly confident, James's appreciation for the whimsy and detail of everyday life are a breath of fresh air. His laid back style, playful wit and appetite for the unconventional make for an evening of mirth and hilarity, and a night in his company is a treat to behold.
Since winning Laughing Boy New Act of the Year, James has gone from strength to strength appearing on Dave's One Night Stand, Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Show & Tell (E4) whilst also playing to over 100,000 people on tour with Milton Jones.
'Curious, original, immensely enjoyable stuff' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department... One of comedy’s most original voices' (Evening Standard)
'Reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring but suffused with enough of his
own personality to sound crisp and fresh' (The Independent)
'Stand-up of the highest most playful order' (The Guardian).

Ivo Graham tour dates
Maff Brown began performing in November 2005. His weekly club, Outside The Box Comedy Club, was nominated and won the prestigious Best Comedy Club Award from the renowned website chortle.co.uk.
Brown tours the UK comedy circuit developing his own material. March 2007 saw him tackle the comedy clubs in New York City and has had numerous gigs in London's legendary Comedy Store, most popular were the charity fundraiser gigs for Macmillan Cancer Support. These have been held on each September after his return from the Edinburgh festival.
2007 saw a successful gig with Brown hosting and the bill including Dara O'Briain, Russell Howard and was headlined by Al Murray. 2008 was a total sell out with The Independent heralding the evening as 'A triumph!'
'Maff is one of those comics that doesn't need to try. Jokes fall out of him like gold coins coming out of a pirate's chest' (Frank Skinner)
'I think Maff Brown is very funny, but if you don't agree you can still laugh at his stupid hair' (Stephen Merchant)
'Brilliant stand up, great material' (Bill Bailey)
'Jokes fall out of him like gold coins from a pirate's chest' (Frank Skinner)
'The love child of Leo Sayer and a performing seal' (Jack Dee).
