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.

“A slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up” The Guardian
Now touring in his own right, Yorkshireman Scott Bennett owes a certain amount of his success to Covid! As lockdown decimated the UK entertainment industry Scott refused to cave in and Stand Up From The Shed was born. Every week, Scott wrote and performed a topical comedy show that was live streamed from (you guessed it) his garden shed! This was quickly picked up by BBC News, Sky News and Five Live, further increasing Scott’s fanbase.
The return to normality has been even better for Scott. He made his debut appearance on BBC’s Live At The Apollo, numerous appearances on Radio 4, toured with John Bishop and won the coveted Best UK Stand Up 2021 award! His latest tour show, ‘Great Scott’ took to the roads of the United Kingdom last year and has been extended into 2023.
“A very funny man” Rob Brydon ★★★★ Chortle ★★★★ TV Bomb
6’7″ Yorkshireman Rob Mulholland has divided the critics – “Clever, layered and acutely observed” The Scotsman, ★★★★★ from Joe.co.uk , “Hilarious” by Broadway Baby and “Mulholland’s your man” by comedy website Chortle. He’s also been described as “Nasty, offensive and dangerous” by National Student so take your pick!
Middle act for the evening is Vancouver’s Jordan Ducharme
