Best In Live Stand-up Comedy: Elis James, Matt Rees, Mike Bubbins, Wes Packer
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Cardiff-based stand-up comedian. A versatile comic actor whose character creation 'Rex' is a regular feature on Rhod Gilbert's BBC Radio Wales show, Elis' profile has been boosted with frequent appearances on BBC Radio One Wales, two critically acclaimed Edinburgh solo shows (The Most Cautious Little Boy in Wales – 2009, and Daytripper – 2010) plus numerous appearances on the UK comedy circuit including tour support act for Rhod Gilbert.
For Elis's 2009 Edinburgh Fringe offering, The Most Cautious Little Boy In Wales, he was subsequently selected for the Best Of The Edinburgh Fest Australian tour, an honour that has been bestowed in previous years to the likes of Dylan Moran, Ross Noble, Simon Pegg and Ardal O'Hanlon. He has also extensively toured Daytripper at the Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane comedy festivals.
'He hypnotises the audience into loving him. There's also a laugh every ten seconds or so which overall makes it a complete joy' (Time Out)
'An intensely likable performer, he manages to get the audience to share in the heat of his unlikely passion, and you'll be rooting for him throughout his various misadventures' (The Guardian).
Elis James tour dates
Welsh Unsigned Stand Up winner 2011, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2012 and BBC Radio 2 New Comedy Award 2012 finalist.
'A properly original comedy mind' (The Guardian)
'With his somewhat miserable persona he enthralls his audiences through his skilfully crafted stories' (Funhouse Comedy).
Matt Rees tour dates
Mike has supported Rhod Gilbert on his sold-out national tour, written and performed how own show at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, been a regular guest comedian on BBC Radio Wales, and regularly performs, and headlines, at some of the best comedy clubs and theatres across the UK.
His comedy style could be described as mix of observation and exasperation,
although really funny would be accurate too!
Mike Bubbins tour dates
Since making his stand-up debut courtesy of Poncho Comedy Club's open-mic night in August 2005 Wes has quickly evolved into a talented stand-up comedian and a favourite on the Cardiff comedy circuit. Comfortable with 10, 20 and 30 minute slots, Wes is forging a reputation as an exciting and fearless opening act. With topics including the dangers of dogging, sex with transsexuals and why he should be allowed to smoke in hospitals, Wes has been mistaken by some for a bit of a 'lad', and can usually be found talking about the things that he should be ashamed or embarassed about, but isn't.
