2019 brings more chances to catch James Acaster’s lastest show.
“One time I bought a lasagne from the supermarket, heated it up in the oven and ate a bit of it and it wasn’t very nice so I put it in the fridge because it felt wrong to dump a whole lasagne in the bin and then later on I ate a spoonful of the cold lasagne because I was drunk and it was absolutely delicious. It was 4am. I then changed the name of a WhatsApp group I was a part of to ‘COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999’ because I had been thinking a lot about how 1999 was the best year of my life and also about how much I hate myself sometimes. The next day I was asked to name my new show. Come along.” – James Acaster
Following a sell-out debut run at London’s Vaudeville Theatre in October last year James Acaster is back with his critically acclaimed brand-new show ‘Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999’, having just ended a second sold-out week run at London’s Phoenix Theatre from the 14th – 19th Jan 2019. Fans however need not fear as James has a THIRD West End run of the show, returning to the Vaudeville Theatre for six performances from 25th February – 2nd March 2019. There will also be chances to catch the show across the UK in the autumn.
Catch James as he 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.
James’s previous three shows Recognise, Represent & Reset and Recap formed his four-part Netflix series, ‘Repertoire’, making him the first UK comic to shoot more than one Netflix Original special. His debut book ‘Classic Scrapes’ made the Sunday Times Bestseller list in 2017. 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.
James has also been enjoying success in the US, with a run of sold out debut shows in LA and New York this year, adding extra dates due to demand. He has also performed on CBS’s ‘Late Late Show with James Corden’ and TBS’s ‘Conan’.
