Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Mock The Week regular and star of his own BBC Radio 4 series, Rhys James heads out on his first national tour.
In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that teenagers are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed. Bit of a shame really, given that he’s figured out the true circle of life, has solved parenting despite having zero children, and even thinks he can predict the curriculum of schools in 50 years. Maybe he’ll inspire some Year 11s in 2069.
‘The sky’s the limit for Rhys James..a masterclass in stand-up.’★★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
As also seen on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, and heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
You can download Rhys’ previous show, Forgives, from Soho Theatre On Demand.
