James Acaster's Classic Scrapes - The Hilarious Sunday Times Bestseller

**THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER**

‘I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that has made me cry with laughter as much as this one. It was very difficult reading it in public as I looked like a madman’ – Richard Herring

James Acaster has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times and has appeared on prime-time TV shows like TASKMASTER, MOCK THE WEEK, LIVE AT THE APOLLO and WOULD I LIE TO YOU?
