Tez Ilyas: Teztify
Tez Ilyas feels like he’s constantly on trial. It’s time to teztify against all the assumptions the world has of him. Armed with his trademark cheek and uncompromising approach, don’t miss this slick, smart and typically subversive show. Star of BBC Radio 4’s TEZ Talks, BBC Two’s 'Live from the BBC' and BBC Three’s ‘Man Like Mobeen’. “Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up” (The Guardian). “Radiantly entertaining” ★★★★ (The Times). “A vital discussion of some of the most difficult issues facing this country” ★★★★ (The Telegraph).

DANE BAPTISTE | G.O.D. (Gold. Oil. Drugs)
Original, provocative and exceptionally prolific, Dane returns to the Fringe with a show about our worldwide pursuit of wealth, power and pleasure. Baptiste made comedy history in 2014 as the first Black British act to be nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award. ‘Observational comedy at its finest’ | Independent. ‘Outstandingly perceptive’ | Scotsman.
As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1) Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), and his own BBC sitcom Sunny D.
