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 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 and catch the masterful James Acaster in this critically-acclaimed hour, where he reflects on the best year of his life and the worst year of his life. 

With intricate, personal storytelling and polished writing, James reaches new heights of pitch-perfect stand-up. His 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. He has also been seen on US TV’s ‘Late Late Show with James Corden’ and ‘Conan’. Don’t miss the five-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee at the top of his game!

Suitable for ages 16+
