UEA’s Laugh at the LCR comedy night will return on Wednesday 23 January 2019 with a host of comedians.
Comedy events have witnessed much success in the Freshers programs of the past few years, with Laugh at the LCR formally introduced this current academic year as a source of variety within a very club-heavy programme of events.
The night is set to be headlined by James Acaster, who has seen recent exposure in the form of his critically acclaimed Netflix special Repertoire. He is expected to perform material from his upcoming September 2019 tour, Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999.
Acaster is commonly featured on hit shows including Russell Howard’s Good News, Live at the Apollo, and Have I Got News For You. He was awarded Best International Act in 2013 by the New Zealand Comedy Guild, and Best Breakthrough Act and Best Show in 2015 by Chortle.
Acaster has also produced numerous successful shows on radio and TV, and his book Classic Scrapes appeared on the Sunday Times Bestseller list.
Acaster will be accompanied by Nathan Caton and Patrick Monahan. Commencing at 7pm, students can purchase tickets for only £10, or £15 for non-students.
