Rob Rouse‘s career has seen him encompass pretty much everything from presenting Channel 4’s The Friday Night Project, to appearing the West End to teaching geography. We would like to point out that this isn’t in chronological order. Rob’s a one man comedy whirlwind who drags the audience into his craftily spun tall tales with bucketfuls of manic energy, first class stage craft, eerily convincing characterisations and a barrage of hilarious one liners.

Stephen Bailey, (Live at the Apollo, Celebrity Mastermind, Takeshi’s Castle etc) is a proud Northern, working class, gay man. Although best known as a TV presenter it’s the arena of live, stand up comedy where Stephen really shines. Gossipy, bitchy, close to the bone even, but with such an infectious sense of fun everyone gets the joke and no one is left behind.

Tez Ilyas! Within a few years of first picking up a microphone this former civil servant won the BBC New Comedy Award and embarked on his first national tour in 2017 – TEZ Talks. Based on the popular TED Talks the show dispelled myths about British Muslims and, despite the somewhat ambitious topic, Ilyas worked his magic, stormed the Edinburgh Fringe, sold out an extended London theatre run and saw TEZ Talks turned into a Radio 4 series.

A familiar face on our screens, Tez is probably best known for Tez Ilyas’ Christmas (Sky Arts), Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) but has also appeared on everything from The One Show to The News Quiz and, of course, his very own The Tez O’Clock Show on Channel 4. A phenomenally funny comedian who refuses to shy away from trickier subjects yet never forgets that the laughs need to come thick and fast.
