Harriet Kemsley tour dates
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
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the Stand-up Show on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on Live At The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, Live At Jongleurs and The World Stands Up for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of TV Meltdown for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary Loose Ends on Radio 4.
'An unassuming comic genius' (Metro)
'Brilliant natural clown' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... van der Borgh can reel off cracking gags and compete with the best freestylers such as Ross Noble' (Evening Standard)
'An excellent stand-up with intelligence and wit' (The Guardian)
