Kettering-born comedian James Acaster will be making a return to his home town to perform a special show as part of his national tour.

James will be hoping to deliver an evening of laughter to a hometown crowd in his performance from 8pm tomorrow at Kettering Arts Centre, St Andrew’s Church, in Lindsay Street.

He began his career in 2008 and has gone on to carve a high-profile name for himself in the world of comedy.

In 2009, James performed in a sell-out three-hander show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, performing alongside Josh Widdicombe and Nick Helm.

Then, in 2010, he won Off The Kerb’s Laughing Boy New Act title before finishing as runner-up in The Latitude Festival New Act Competition, where he performed to an audience of more than 4,000 people.

He has supported Josie Long and Milton Jones on their national tours and he has also made TV appearances on Russell Howard’s Good News, Dave’s One Night Stand, Chris Addison’s Show and Tell and Live At The Comedy Store.

Last year he was also nominated for the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award for his show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Tickets for tomorrow’s show are £8 or £10.
