One of the UK’s fastest-rising new comedy talents James Acaster is appearing at the Last Laugh Sheffield Comedy Festival next week with his new show, Represent.

Represent focuses on James’s time spent during jury service for a murder trial and was a huge hit at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Having quickly established himself as one of the most distinctive and brilliant young comedians of his generation, James Acaster has been nominated three times for Foster’s Best Comedy Show Award at Edinburgh for the last three years in a row.

Last year, he won the Best International Show Award at the 2014 New Zealand International Comedy Festival.

And this year, he has picked up Chortle Awards for Best Breakthrough Act and Best Show.

He is at the Crucible Theatre Studio on Monday, October 12, at 8pm.

Tickets are £14.50 on 0114 2496000 or www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
