James Acaster Best Comedy Show
This was the lad from Kettering's third consecutive nomination for the main award. Acaster's ruse in this show was to present himself as a undercover cop pretending to be a stand up comedian, a device that helped him tie up various strands to make an enjoyable, artful whole. Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three) and Chris Addison's Show and Tell (E4) feature among James' various TV credits. Recognise will be on tour this Autumn.
