CHORTLE BEST BREAKTHROUGH NOMINEE 2017
Tez Ilyas hit the ground running. In his first three years as a stand up, he found himself in no less than eight competition finals including the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award and Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year.
Tez is one of the stars of hit sitcom Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three), and has appeared on Mock the Week (BBC Two), The Last Leg (Channel 4), Live From the BBC (BBC Two), Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Kevin Hart’s Live from Montreal (LOL Network), Virtually Famous (E4), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and starred in both his own Channel 4 comedy pilot, Bounty (which has become the most watched show in the format’s 10 year history), and fronted his own satirical entertainment series, The Tez O’Clock Show (Channel 4), to huge critical acclaim.
★★★★ ‘Tez Ilyas’s political stand-up is candyfloss with a razorblade inside: sweet and familiar at first, then shockingly, painfully sharp. It’s the kind of manoeuvre that takes serious talent to pull off.’ The Telegraph
★★★★ ‘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
★★★★ ‘Radiantly entertaining.’ The Times
From Live at the Apollo, Phoenix Nights, The News Quiz and Fighting Talk Justin is everyone’s favourite northern charmer as well as a nationally recognised comedy hero.
