James Acaster has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times and has appeared on prime-time TV shows like Taskmaster, Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and Would I Lie to You?

But behind the fame and critical acclaim is a man perpetually getting into trouble. Whether it's disappointing a skydiving instructor mid-flight, hiding from thugs in a bush wearing a bright red dress, or annoying the Kettering Board Games club, a didgeridoo-playing conspiracy theorist and some bemused Christians, James is always finding new ways to embarrass himself.

Appearing on Josh Widdicombe's radio show to recount these stories, the feature was christened 'James Acaster's classic scrapes'. Here, in his first book, James recounts these tales (including never-before-heard stories) along with self-penned drawings, in all their glorious stupidity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'James Acaster has a brilliant comic mind, crackling with energy every bit as much as his corduroy slacks.' - Milton Jones

'An amazing book of grimly hilarious true stories . . . with devastating deadpan
lines. A total, bleak treat.' - Daily Star

'I don't think I've ever read a book that has made me cry with laughter as much as this one. It was very difficult reading it in public as I looked like a madman.' - Richard Herring

“Wonderfully ridiculous anecdotes”

Over the summer holidays me and my teenage son have done a fair few day trips, so to make the long drives endurable we’ve taken up listening to audiobooks in the car. This is one we’ve particularly enjoyed. So much so... More
