Lou Sanders tour dates
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).
James Acaster tour dates
Abandoman create hilarious musical sketches at lightning speed live in front of their audience. No two gigs are ever the same. The project sees frontman Rob and multi-instrumentalist James Hancox reinventing hip hop in a way that appeals to even its most ardent detractors.
They sold out the Edinburgh Fringe for 3 weeks in a row and were winners of the Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year 2010.

'Superb... delivered with such glorious abandon' (List)
'A comedian on the up... An ingenious, witty look at identity that suggests Kumar
will soon be getting known for all the right reasons' (The Times)
A highly polished, subtly innovative stand-up... he nails the punchlines over and over again, thanks to taut, economical writing that puts audience pleasure firmly ahead of self-indulgence... His is a talent worth catching up with' (The Guardian)
'A laughter-filled hour' (The Daily Telegraph).
