A rising star in British comedy is bringing his tour to a local theatre.

Tez Ilyas is bringing his new show Populist to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on November 14, 2020.

The tour will begin on September 11 2020 at the ARC, Stockton and conclude on November 28 2020, in his hometown Blackburn, King George’s Hall.

Join Tez as he uses his trademark silly, smart and subversive approach to pit ordinary people against the establishment. Expect huge laughs, groans and shocks as Tez confronts the state of the world with a cheeky, provocative flair and his best show yet.

In 2015, Ilyas achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand-up show TEZ Talks. A sell out run at the Soho Theatre and his own BBC Radio 4 series based on the show followed.

Tez created three series of the hit radio show and it was used by the BBC as one of its flagship shows for the launch of BBC Sounds. 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 audience’s night after night.

Tez has since appeared on multi-award winning Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) which is back with series three early next year, Live at The Apollo (BBC Two), The Last Leg (C4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), 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 Blap, 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 (C4), to huge critical acclaim.
