Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
The star of BBC Radio 4's Tez Talks is back in the building.
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 on a nationwide tour.
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 heading across the UK.
‘Articulate, passionate, thoughtful – he is equally light entertainer and heavyweight pontificator.’
‘A mischievous show with serious intent – Ilyas has the slickness of U.S. comics, and the gags to back it up.’
‘Tez Ilyas’ political stand-up is candy floss with a razorblade inside: sweet and familiar at first, then shockingly, painfully sharp. It takes serious talent to pull off.’
‘Thoughtful but radiantly entertaining.’
