Best Newcomer Season
The finest up and coming comedy acts from Edinburgh and Melbourne wrapped up in Best Newcomer Season bow.
Well, well, well. If it isn’t Rhys James. The guy who said comedy shows are for losers and blurbs are for idiots. Unbelievable. He’s 26 now which means he’s officially closer to 30 than he is to his stepdad. This is the critically acclaimed new show from the ‘whip-smart wordsmith’ who still has his wisdom teeth.
“Sickeningly talented young stand up… never more than a few seconds away from another punchline.”★★★★ Time Out
As seen on Mock the Week and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and as heard on his own BBCRadio 4 series ‘Rhys James Is…’.
‘James is flip your head back, laugh out loud, clap spontaneously, elbow the stranger next to you, snort uncontrollably and pee your pants funny.’
‘Charismatic, clever and self aware… destined for great things.’
‘Hilarious… a young comedian going from great to better.’
