Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

James Acaster Lawnmower (UK)

Nominee 2012 & 2013 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award

It's time for some low-key stand-up from an angular young man, James Acaster – one of the UK’s hottest emerging comics. A whole host of topics are about to get what they’ve got coming to them. Quite frankly, it’s high time someone gave it to them the way they’re about to get it. Here we go.

The king of well-executed callbacks, clever visual gags and ridiculous stories, James Acaster is bringing his whimsical anecdotes and playful wit to Melbourne for the first time.

As seen on Nevermind the Buzzcocks and Russell Howard’s Good News.

"One of the sharpest comic minds to have emerged in recent years." The Guardian (UK)

"Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department." Evening Standard (UK)

"One of the best hours of straight stand-up at this year's festival." Time Out (UK)

"Beautifully constructed 'art of stand-up' stuff...this show will be taught in schools as the perfect how-to example." The Sunday Times (UK)
