Tez Ilyas: Made in Britain

Join one of the UK’s most exciting rising stars of the comedy world as he heads out on his first nationwide tour.

In 2015, Tez Ilyas achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up show TEZ Talks. It was met with packed out audiences and huge commercial success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A totally sold out run at London's Soho Theatre followed, with additional dates at the prestigious Southbank Centre. The show went onto be adapted into a series for BBC Radio 4 (with a second series coming in 2017).

Tez is now taking his follow-up show, the critically acclaimed, smash hit Made in Britain, on tour.

Ayesha Hazarika: State of the Nation

Politics, power and how we lost the plot.

Ayesha Hazarika, MBE, started her career as a stand-up comedian playing clubs across the country. She then took what she thought was a natural diversion into the Labour Party as a Special Adviser working for Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.

Since leaving front line politics she’s become a much sought after commentator writing for the FT, Guardian, Evening Standard, New Statesman and Grazia.

Ayesha has also returned to her stand-up roots. Her one woman show Tales from the Pink Bus was a sell-out hit at the 2016 Edinburgh festival and she's been in huge demand on TV and radio recently starring as a guest on Matt Forde’s Unspun for Dave.

Further credits include regular appearances on Good Morning Britain (ITV), Sky Papers (Sky News), The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The Agenda (ITV) and The Today Programme (BBC Radio4).

Ayesha lifts the lid on what life’s really like behind the scenes at Westminster with brutal honesty and humour and asks what's next for British politics.

The State of the Nation is one of the best things to come out of British politics in a long time.

WHY? 'Hazarika’s return to stand up is also public service, never less than entertaining' The Guardian
