The Coastal Comedy Christmas Special with TV headliner Tez Ilyas!
December 7 @ 8:30 pm
Star of BBC Radio 4’s Tez Talks and seen on:
Mock the Week (BBC2)
Live at the BBC (BBC2)
Man Like Mobeen (BBC3)
Tez Ilyas hit the ground running in his first year as a stand-up comedian finding himself in no less than eight competition finals. Since then he has achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up hour TEZ Talks, enjoyed a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre and had his own Radio 4 series.
Tez has had a few years storming Edinburgh with his solo shows, but in recent months you will have seen him on Live at The BBC, Chris Ramsay’s Stand Up Central, Mock The Week and most recently Comedy Central’s Roast Battles.
★★★★ ‘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’ The Guardian
Opening the show is the hilarious Mike Cox who has quickly made his mark on the comedy circuit with his sharp wit and everyday cynicism which have seen him crowned winner of the Fosters South Coast Comedian of the Year, while he reached the final of Amused Moose Laugh Off 2016 both the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny in 2012 and The Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year in 2013.
Mike’s accessible style and ease with both mainstream and alternative audiences currently make him one of the most enjoyable young comics to watch.
“Like an Everyman, if that Everyman had delicious cynicism and razor sharp wit” – Romesh Ranganathan.
Plus support from Ben Robson South Coast Comedian of The Year 2018 Runner up!
“Precision, presence and personality. Ben Robson’s original flare is a pleasure to watch on stage” Mirth Control
