James Acaster Returns, Again! (2024) | Part Two

In the second part of this special episode, we explore the development journey of James' latest show, Hecklers Welcome, the false idea of a perfect audience and dealing with the inner-crisis of being a comedian.

I also put your questions to James, where we talk all things Ghostbusters, Bo Burnham and *that* Oscars moment.
