‘Love is the absence of judgement’ (Dalai Lama XIV). Running his mouth off about a bunch of stuff nobody even cares about – it’s James Acaster. Nifty. Snazzy. 30 years old. Doing his best to improve his posture. Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show nominee 2014, 2013 and 2012. Seen on Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Russell Howard’s Good News.
