Tez Ilyas

Hilarious Comedian & TV Personality

Tez Ilyas hit the ground running. In his first three years as a stand up, 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. In 2015, Tez achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up hour TEZ Talks. A sell out run at the Soho Theatre and his own BBC Radio 4 series based on the show followed, with a second series released in 2018 and a third already commissioned.

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, followed in 2018 by his second sell-out nationwide tour.

Tez is one of the stars of hit sitcom Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) and has appeared on Mock the Week, The Last Leg, Live From the BBC, Live from The Comedy Store, Kevin Hart’s Live from Montreal, Virtually Famous, The Now Show and made a brand new quiz show pilot for Vice. He has also written and starred in his own scripted comedy shorts for BBC Three, BBC iPlayer and Sky Arts.
