James Acaster: Prompt

NOMINEE: BEST SHOW FOSTER’S EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD 2012

James Acaster is out on tour with a show full to the brim of comedy and critical acclaim. Prepare yourself for flights of fancy, remarkable gesticulation and maybe even some tempo changes. One thing’s for sure – you will go absolutely bananas.

Running time: Approx 60 minutes

‘Prompt is a beautifully structured show, with smart, unexpected callbacks and clever resurfacings of earlier material. A lot of effort has gone into this intelligent, low-key show, and it’s paid off – ‘Prompt’ is one of the best pieces of straight stand-up at this year’s festival. ★★★★ Time Out

‘Debunks lad attitude (the antithesis of this charity shop chic jester) in a style reminiscent of Stewart Lee or Richard Herring, but suffused with enough of his own personality to sound crisp and fresh.’ ★★★★ Independent

‘James Acaster’s comedy is a gloriously funny shambles.’ Guardian
