Suspiciously Cheap Comedy - Christmas Spectacular: James Acaster, Kathryn Mather, Goose, Gein's Family Giftshop, Kiri Pritchard-McLean
The biggest and best new-material night in London returns, with the biggest and best acts. Come and celebrate Christmas, unless you're a boozy office party, in which case you're not welcome.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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), Mock The Week (BBC Two) 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).
James Acaster was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
