'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2017 and 2016.

A mischievous and engaging comic, he tackles a variety of topics with an intelligent mind and a flair for deconstructing modern society while subverting audience's expectations. His playful style and cheeky personality, along with a wry wit led him to win the coveted London Comedy Store's King Gong on his first attempt, as well as reaching the finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards. Star of BBC Radio 4’s TEZ Talks, BBC Two’s 'Live from the BBC' and BBC Three’s ‘Man Like Mobeen’.
'Sartorially stylish and winningly cheeky' (Chortle)
“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).
Tez Ilyas tour dates
Welsh Unsigned Stand Up Finalist 2011 and winner in 2012.
'Brookes has clearly spent time meticulously planning the theatrics, the jokes, the absurdity, and the outbursts to a beat and shows all the signs of a highly skilled comedy writer and performer' (http://www.chaplinmoustachecomedy.co.uk)
'... the best joke of the night...' (Loaded Magazine)
'His role as an outsider was thoughtfully created and brilliantly executed' (South Wales Echo)
'Had it not been for his nomination for a Comedians' Choice award, Jordan might have flown under the radar completely this Fringe. And that would have been a shame, as he deserves recognition for doing something a little different with the art form... with performance skills to spare and an innovative approach running through this assured debut like lettering in seaside rock' (Chortle).
