One of the most exciting rising stars on the comedy circuit, Tez Ilyas, is set to return to his hometown Blackburn on 27th November 2021 with a brand new and highly anticipated stand up show, ‘The Vicked Tour’.
Join Tez as he uses his trademark silly, smart and subversive humour to celebrate all that we still have. Expect mega laughs, happy groans and cheeky provocations, as Tez guarantees a ‘Vicked’ time.
Tez said: “I have so missed my day job… that I do in the evenings. I cannot wait to tour the country and celebrate our freedom with my fans.”
Described by The Guardian as ‘Blackburn’s Chris Rock’, Tez was nominated for Club Comedian of the Year in this year’s Chortle Awards.
As well as delivering his politically astute stand-up, he is one of the stars of hit sitcom Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) and has appeared on a host of panel shows, including Mock The Week and The Last Leg, as well as fronting his own critically-acclaimed cult-hit satirical series The Tez O’Clock Show (Channel 4).
Earlier this month, Tez published his first book ‘The Secret Diary of a British Muslim Aged 13 ¾‘. In this suitably dramatic rollercoaster of a teenage memoir, Tez takes us back to where it all began: a working class, insular British Asian Muslim community in his hometown of post-Thatcher Blackburn.
Meet Ammi (Mum), Baji Rosey (the older sister), Shibz (the fashionable cousin), Was (the cool cousin), Shiry (the cleverest cousin) and a community with the most creative nicknames this side of Top Gun.
