Armed with his trademark cheek and uncompromising approach, the star of BBC Radio 4’s Tez Talks and BBC2’s Live from the BBC, Tez Ilyas, presents his slick, smart and typically subversive new stand-up show.

As also seen on BBC2’s Mock The Week, Channel 4’s The Last Leg, BBC3’s Man Like Mobeen and regularly heard on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show. Following a successful solo tour of his previous show last year, and a support slot on Josie Long’s nationwide tour, Tez is back entertaining the masses.

 

 

‘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’
