About This List

A collection of appearances by James Acaster. If, for some reason, you feel like binging the guy.
  1. RHLSTP #49: James Acaster - Two Men in a Field with Walkie Talkies and it's All Clear. Psychic Richard manages to divine the life of someone in his front row merely by looking at him, though what he finds out about this person's nipples will change your life forever. His guest this week is the Rod Hull faced comedian James Acaster. You will find out what it's like to survive three car crashes and two train derailments, how much you could expect to earn selling slurpies in Kettering in the 1990s and what it is that draws the police to conspiracy theorists. Acaster also completely Mitchells the new emergency question. But has he ever seen a Bigfoot? You'll have to wait until the end of the podcast to find out. But it's unlikely I reckon.

  2. Welcome, welcome, and as standard here is your third welcome, to the humbly magnificent Distraction Pieces Podcast! Episode 104 would you believe... Goddamn... Prepare yourselves for another heavy hitting good'un as Pip is joined by none other than UK comedy titan and overlord James Acaster! Are 'titan' and 'overlord' too strong to throw around like that? Nah. The man with the strong 'A' at the start of his surname (and partial sharer of the name of the platform you might be listening upon right now) is in the DPP studios to bring forth pure goodness on your ears, sharing his take on all things comedy (UK and otherwise), his modest entry into the comedy scene and how he went from awesomely named band to awesomely named band until he broke good into comedy, his Edinburgh Fringe experiences (from bad to very very good), and way deeper into his ongoing comedy hours and the themes, dreams and schemes therein. Too much science and wisdom to be synopsised in this description - just dive on in and live it won't...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

  14. After 14 months of exclusively letting women flex their drunk detective skills, the ladies thought they'd honour International Men's Day on 19th November the only way they know how...by inviting four men round throughout the month and plying them with hard booze in order to solve a past crime.First off we have comedian James Acaster, who came laden with a 'great' cocktail recipe and a request for Tia Maria, vodka and stout... here ladies and gentlemen for your listening pleasure, is the result of that union.James kicks things off by telling a story that confirms he's more than qualified to join the force, after starting early in life at the detecting game. The gang then attempt to get to the bottom of a crime involving an unconfirmed spiritual possession (whilst in possession of some spirits of their own). They then set about cracking a listener case, with a slightly inaccurate method of proving if someone may or may not be guilty, usually reserved for the kangaroo court of the playground.Come and see The Drunk Women LIVE:Salford Lowry on 22nd Nov 2019Leicester Square London on 3rd DecFull details and tickets here: drunkwomensolvingcrime.com  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
