In 2015, Tez Ilyas achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up show TEZ Talks. It was met with packed out audiences and huge commercial success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A totally sold-out run here followed with additional dates at the prestigious Southbank Centre. The show went onto be adapted into a series for BBC Radio 4 (with a second series coming in 2017).
Tez is now taking his follow-up show, the critically acclaimed, smash hit Made in Britain, on tour.
Star of BBC Radio 4 and as seen on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, ITV2, Channel 4, E4, Comedy Central and Sky Arts.
Running Time: 60 mins
Age Recommendation: 16+
‘Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up, though his most prized asset could yet be his bold, subversive streak.’
‘A vital discussion of some of the most difficult issues facing this country’
‘Tez Ilyas’s show is intelligent and truly hilarious.’
Edinburgh Comedy Magazine ★★★★★
‘A show that’s pertinent, intelligent and playful.’
‘…a forward thinking, hard-hitting, novel and altogether universal approach to the need to talk about identity. Expect and hope to see far more of him.’
