Tez Ilyas was born and raised in Blackburn, Lancashire, and is of Pakistani heritage. His reputation for delivering smart, sharp and powerfully satirical content has fast established him as one of the most exciting rising stars in British Comedy.

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

Tez has since appeared on Live at the Apollo, The Last Leg, Mock the Week, Live From the BBC, Man Like Mobeen, Live from the Comedy Store, Kevin Hart’s Live from Montreal, The Now Show and many more.  His 2018 Ted Talk Made in Britain – which explored Tez being both British and Muslim, was so successful that it began trending on Twitter

“Blackburn-born Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up, though his most prized asset could yet be his bold, subversive streak." The Guardian

"Radiantly entertaining." The Times

"A vital discussion of some of the most difficult issues facing this country." Daily Telegraph


Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.

“Such a brilliant set – well observed, well written and funny obvs!” Josie Long

“Behind the beard is a comic whose instinctive mastery of his form immediately marks him out as one to watch.” The Guardian


Somali-born, Cardiff-raised and London-based, Mo Omar brings in his third culture kid way of thinking. Winner of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year 2017 and semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny and Amused Moose.

He is a fast rising talent with a unique perspective.

"Omar has a winningly irreverent attitude to sacred cows, with a fresh and feisty delivery that gives him a contemporary edge." Chortle


Jess is a brand new, freshly minted comic. We get requests all the time from new acts wanting to come play at the venue and her video was full of spritely invention and charm which we couldn't say no to.  We're getting out our big red pen and hotly tipping this one!


Maggy Whitehouse is a Independent Catholic Priest and comedian. No, she’s not fluffy and no, she will not be trying to convert you. Think Father Ted but with a slightly better taste in cardigans. Maggy extracts the Archangel Michael out of religion and its stupidities from inside the box and reinterprets the Bible in a kick-ass kind of way. Look out for Maggy as a trusted and hysterical opener and closer on the UK comedy circuit.

“Ridiculously funny.” Adam Hills

“A witty presence, acknowledging her unusual place in an atheist-dominated comedy circuit, with an excellent comeback to hecklers.” Chortle



Standing a statuesque five foot five inches high (not in heels) and weighing in at eleven stone (on a good day) Ben is the current light-middleweight contender for compering champion of North London.

"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle

"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“The perfect comedy club host – he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren’t just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage.”  Huffington Post
