James Acaster is releasing his first ever book this year, James

Acaster’s Classic Scrapes, which is going to be a collection of self-deprecating anecdotes about scrapes James has gotten himself into over the years, famed from the slot of the same name on Josh Widdicombe's XFM radio show.

Publishers Headline say: 'Unfortunately for James, fame and critical acclaim haven't prevented him from ending up in a breathtaking amount of farcical misadventures. From having to hide in a bush outside Basingstoke station overnight wearing a bright red dress, to drunkenly incurring the wrath of night bus lads, to being the only person in history to get "cabbaged" by a child, James apparently lives his life in a perpetual sitcom.'

Acaster, who has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times in a row, said: 'I have lived an extremely blessed life save for enough awful/stupid experiences to fill a book with and so I thought it only fair to fill a book with them.

Come along and see him read sneak peaks from the book.

'There's no one better at constructing a show than Acaster' (Guardian)
'Comic genius' (Evening Standard)
'He really is rewriting the comedy rulebook' (Time Out)
'A virtuoso display of comic invention' (Chortle)
