Tez Ilyas is one of the most celebrated rising stars in British Comedy.  He started performing comedy in 2010 – hitting the ground running, 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).

2015 was a huge year for Tez with performances on BBC1, Radio 4 and E4 as well his debut show Tez Talks being met with huge critical acclaim, a sell out run at the Soho Theatre. 

In 2016, his highly anticipated follow up show ‘Made in Britain’ went on to sell out every single performance (including extra shows) at the Edinburgh Fringe and gained spectacular critical acclaim, with a smash hit nationwide tour in 2017.

His third show Teztify once again delivered a spectacularly powerful, provocative and brilliantly funny hour of topical stand up, delivering to packed out audiences night after night.

Tez has appeared on The Last Leg (C4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live From the BBC (BBC Two), Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three), 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 made a brand new quiz show pilot for Vice. He has also written and starred in his own scripted comedy shorts.
