Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on March 25, 2023, 10:20:51 AM'Hecklers welcome' sounds like reverse psychology.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on March 26, 2023, 10:08:11 PM"Duration: 30 mins, interval, 90 minutes"Is this accurate? Seems a bit of a strange running time.
Quote from: Bad Ambassador on March 25, 2023, 11:59:40 AMHe's just been announced as cast in the next Ghostbusters film, in news that sounds obviously made up but really isn't, honestly. https://deadline.com/2023/03/kumail-nanjiani-patton-oswalt-ghostbusters-afterlife-sequel-1235308852/
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on March 27, 2023, 02:07:14 PMSomeone who went to a show in the back room of Meltdown Comics around 2005 cast this movie, apparently.
Quote from: Twilkes on March 27, 2023, 03:58:38 PMNot sure if you were referring to this, but Acaster genuinely got cast in the Cinderella movie because a different actor dropped out and the director had just seen a clip of Acaster's standup and said "What about this guy?"
Quote from: iamcoop on March 27, 2023, 01:22:26 PMIt meant the audience went a bit wild for the first half an hour and then after the break people seemed more relaxed and he got stuck into the material properly. On paper it looks like an odd structure but it worked well enough.
Quote from: The Mollusk on March 27, 2023, 04:26:02 PMIt's not unlike a lot of old prog rock albums where the first side is 3 or 4 shorter and more direct tracks to get you into the swing of it, and then you get up and flip the record and sit down for a 19 minute side-long epic that blows your tits off.
Quote from: Icehaven on March 27, 2023, 04:51:53 PMDoes he have a particular issue with heckling then? I've been listening to Off Menu recently now I'm slow overcoming my weird aversion to his voice and he mentions/moans about having loads of people shouting at him at his gigs in the Joe Lycett one and that was over 3 years ago.
Quote from: iamcoop on March 27, 2023, 01:22:26 PMWhen I saw Kitson years ago this is how he structured his show. It meant the audience went a bit wild for the first half an hour and then after the break people seemed more relaxed and he got stuck into the material properly. On paper it looks like an odd structure but it worked well enough.
Quote from: Twilkes on March 27, 2023, 05:27:35 PMHis last tour was over three years ago. He's always had a reputation for bombing really badly when he bombs, but from this article - https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/features/james-acaster-interview-social-media-book-ricky-gervais-b2147553.html"His 2019 tour Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999 saw him at his most vulnerable on stage, speaking candidly about his mental health. But fame had brought with it an increased number of hecklers who, when combined with the personal material, were hard to handle.After recording Cold Lasagne in December 2019, Acaster took his break from stand-up. The tour had been a tricky one. He'd gone into it excited to let go of some of that onstage persona and talk about his real life. By the end, audience members were writing online that Acaster was spending large chunks of every show engaging with his hecklers, unable to ignore their shouts.What that time allowed him was an opportunity to work on his relationship with the audience, get a handle on hecklers, and think about how he can protect his mental health on stage. "I'm going into it knowing, 'Here are the things that I really didn't enjoy before, so let's focus on those things and let's focus on making that better, and making that aspect of my performance better,'" he says. "To now pick it up from there and go, 'OK, I don't like all those things, but what are we going to do about that? How are we going to make sure those things don't ruin it for you?' – that's been really positive."
Quote from: Icehaven on March 27, 2023, 09:16:39 PMI definitely don't get the thought process of buying a ticket to see a comedian then trying to yell them off stage
Quote from: Ray Travez on March 28, 2023, 01:01:10 AMWhen they buy the ticket, they're sober
Quote from: jobotic on March 28, 2023, 10:17:01 AMLive the live stuff I've seen on TV and Hate Myself so thought of getting tickets Brighton. Can't afford £33 particularly if he has a habit of off nights.
