Never miss another 'James Acaster' show
Group Therapy Comedy Club: James Acaster, John Robins, Danny McLoughlin
This event has been moved to Gorilla.
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).
James Acaster tour dates
Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (The Skinny)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'... fantastically entertaining' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Sparkling stand-up' (The Times)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).
John Robins tour dates
With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set, Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.
Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word.
A bright future surely awaits.
'McLoughlin's main weapon is his audacity: he's so bold he can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs' (Chortle).
