James Acaster reflects on the best year of his life and the worst year of his life and does stand up comedy about them while throwing a strop.  Last year he did a reading of his book at the Underbelly Festival and while the blurb in the festival programme and online said very clearly that it was a book reading absolutely zero members of the audience knew it was a book reading and were expecting stand up. So having learnt that no one reads these blurbs you'll excuse me if I don't put 100% effort into this one. I will however put maximum effort into the show, which is a stand up show although I imagine the audience will be expecting a book reading.

This show is not eligible for the 20% off season offer.
