S9, Ep8 How to Fail: James Acaster

Read more

Yes, it's the SEASON FINALE - I know, I know, it comes around so quickly doesn't it? But fear not, for we have an excellent guest in the form of James Acaster: comedian, podcaster, author and music enthusiast (specifically enthusiastic for anything released in 2016, which he claims in his book, Perfect Sound Whatever, is the best year for music dot dot dot ever).

As well as being the only British stand-up to have fronted a four-part Netflix special, James co-hosts the Off Menu podcast. He joins me to talk about mental health, political correctness, relationship break-ups, dropping out of school and the importance of making mistakes without being overly critical of everything you've ever done wrong [TW: contains discussion of suicidal thoughts]. Plus the time he called a heckler a paedophile and immediately regretted it.

Thank you so much for listening to season nine - and we'll be back in the not-too distant future with a couple of exciting bonus episodes.


I have a new book out! Failosophy: A Handbook For When Things Go Wrong contains two-and-bit years worth of accumulated wisdom from my fantastic podcast guests.


How To Fail With Elizabeth Day is hosted by Elizabeth Day, produced by Naomi Mantin and Chris Sharp. We love hearing from you! To contact us, email howtofailpod@gmail.com You can buy our fantastic PODCAST MERCH here.

James Acaster's book, Perfect Sound Whatever, is out now.

RHLSTP 283 - James Acaster

Read more

#283 Mummified Cat - It’s an extra special sell-out episode which has been bought and paid for by Ian Oxygen of O2 and that originally went out to Priority at O2 customers. But now everyone can see/hear it! Hooray. The guest is factory visitor James Acaster. 

They discuss binding agents, annoying Anne Diamond, the Wombles, whether Rich was the best or worst Off Menu guest of all time, Tim Vine, Biblical recordings and having to pretend you liked How I Met Your Mother. Plus the charity work that Richard hates to talk about,

Plus Rich has a big surprise for James. Many thanks to Gail Venckner.
