One of “comedy’s most original voices” has announced a huge show in Carlisle.

James Acaster will be bringing his latest tour to the city’s Sands Centre on Saturday, June 1.

Tickets for the the tour, called COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999, will go on sale on Friday at 10am.

Explaining the origin of the tour, James said: “One time I bought a lasagne from the supermarket, heated it up in the oven and ate a bit of it and it wasn’t very nice so I put it in the fridge because it felt wrong to dump a whole lasagne in the bin and then later on I ate a spoonful of the cold lasagne because I was drunk and it was absolutely delicious.

“It was 4am. I then changed the name of a WhatsApp I was a part of to COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999 because I had been thinking a lot about how 1999 was the best year of my life and also about how much I hate myself sometimes. The next day I was asked to name my new show. Come along.”

Tickets are £18.50 plus booking fee and available from 01228 633766 or online at
