James Acaster is a very good comedian but he was rude to me after a gig circa 2013 and I've never been able to enjoy his comedy since.

Maybe you are an arsehole. Did that cross your mind?

Funnily enough, this actually make me enjoy his comedy more.

Acaster held the door open for me once.
Said thanks and he said no problem.

A dull exchange undoubtedly, but one that shows his basic politeness.

James is an odd name too, when you look at it. Plural Jame. No wonder he's a comedian!

I really wasn't. I told him how much I'd enjoyed the show, thanked him and wished him all the very best - Just as I have with dozens of comedy acts over the years. He was the only one to simply silently stare blankly at me for what seemed like an eternity before turning his back. I'm not saying he's always a rude cunt but he definitely was to me that night.

Have you considered the possibility you were invisible?

Holy shit! I did go to the venue that night via a secret laboratory with all blue lightning and smoke emanating from it so it's not out the question.

Saw a preview of Cold Lasange, Hate Myself 1999 last night. Excellent, superb, brilliant. His best stuff yet. I've always been impressed by his work, but the subject matter was a little too whimsical at times for me, dwelling on a silly premise for a long time. This new show is a lot more personal, but still retaining the style and writing that have put him on such an elite level. It's progression that could send him into the stratosphere. Definitely recommend you all go see it later this year.

Want to echo this, really fantastic show. Would put it well above anything I saw in 2018. Glad I got to see him do it in a room above a pub setting too, he has such a great intensity to his stuff that I have to assume gets lost a bit in a big theatre

Shut up, i delayed getting tickets for the extra show they added due to the first one being sold out, and now that that show is sold out, i do not need to hear about how great the show is

I saw it in November when he did a run at a theatre and it was still quite intensely intense.

The row of banter lads behind us didn't like it though. Especially when he went for Brexit.

Sorry for the bump, but I'm on the lookout for a spare ticket to one of his remaining Cold Lasagne tour dates.
Please drop me a message if you have or know of one.
