About this show

James Acaster reflects on the best year of his life and the worst year of his life and does stand up comedy about them while throwing a strop.

Join James at The Phoenix Theatre in London’s West End for the second outing of his critically acclaimed show Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999 added due to phenomenal demand.

James’ last four shows form his Netflix four-part series, Repertoire. He is the first UK comic to shoot more than one Netflix Original special. His debut book 'Classic Scrapes' made the Sunday Times bestseller list. As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Would I Lie to You, QI and Have I Got News for You.

A whimsical master, he has received acclaim from around the world, including a record-breaking 5 consecutive nominations for ‘Best Comedy Show’ at the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.
