Comedian James Acaster returning to Lincoln

Comedian James Acaster is returning to Lincoln next summer with his new show Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999.

The comedian, who was in Lincoln earlier this year performing at the Comedy Feast at Lincoln Castle, is set to return to perform at the Engine Shed on Thursday, June 6, 2019.

Tickets go on sale next week on December 7 at 10am priced at £20.

Doors open at 7pm and the show is due to start at 7.30pm, with entry for ages 14 and above.

He performed his three show ‘Trelogy’ (Recognise, Represent and Reset) around the country over three consecutive nights before culminating in a four-part series for Netflix called Repertoire.

James, who has appeared in panel shows such as Mock the Week, is the first UK comedian to shoot more than one Netflix Original special and this should be a great evening.

He also wrote his own sitcom We the Jury for the BBC in 2016 starring Diane Morgan, Ed Easton and Sophie Thompson.

Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999

James once bought a lasagne from the supermarket, heated it up in the oven and ate a bit of it, but was very disappointed.

He put it in the fridge because it felt wrong to put it all in the bin. When he was drunk later he ate a spoonful of the cold lasagne at 4am and said it was “absolutely delicious”.

This caused him to change the name of a WhatsApp group he was part of to the name of his latest show because 1999 had been the best year of his life, but he also thought about how much he hates himself sometimes.

The next day he was asked to name his new show and the rest is history.
