    James Acaster - Amongst Other Things UK tour 2012

    Winning over critics and fans alike, James Acaster has earned himself a reputation as one of the most hotly tipped acts of 2012. Following a smash-hit, critically acclaimed debut at the Edinburgh Festival with Amongst Other Things, James will be performing his unique brand of absurdity across the UK from March.

    "Delightfully whimsical, deliciously daft!" - London Evening Standard

    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.
