Star of BBC Radio 4’s Tez Talks
Tez Ilyas hit the ground running in his first year as a stand-up comedian finding himself in no less than eight competition finals. Since then he has achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand up hour TEZ Talks, enjoyed a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre and had his own Radio 4 series.
Tez has had a few years storming Edinburgh with his solo shows, but in recent months you will have seen him on Live at The BBC, Chris Ramsay's Stand Up Central, Mock The Week and most recently Comedy Central's Roast Battles.
‘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
We can’t wait to bring Tez to the Lighthouse!
Opening the show is the hilarious comedy magician Wayne the Weird - master of stupidity and nonchalance and a massive hit with any audience.
Wayne's comedic skills have seen him perform on stage internationally as well as all throughout the UK from comedy clubs, castles and bowling alleys to golf clubs, churches, and even Zippos Circus!
"Outrageous comedian and magician." The Southern Daily Echo
"No one in the audience will ever look at rubber gloves and white rabbits in the same way again." Creative Cows Comedy
Plus support from Andy Stedman who is a lively, likeable and versatile act. Andy has a cheeky persona and his set is a lively and varied one, with a mix of songs, silly poems, jokes and audience interaction.

Andy is a cheeky, likeable comedian who cleverly mixes songs, jokes and audience interaction to great effect. He gigs all over the UK on professional bills and is quickly getting a name for himself on the circuit as a bankable act and MC. Prior to his comedy career Andy was a mildly successful singer/songwriter - Uncut magazine once said he had a "voice sure to melt hearts!" In 2018 Andy was honoured to be asked to be the opening act for Bobby Davro on his theatre tour. "As well as being one of the nicest, most considerate acts on the circuit Andy Stedman is a fine comedian. Whether he's the compere or headliner he always delivers funny routines without resorting to offensive language or material, which in this day and age is a refreshing quality to possess. First class in my book." - Bobby Davro '... the musical Andy Stedman and his wonderful mix of real life songs and storytelling...' - Funhouse Comedy 'Stedman displays real talent in playing to his audience... his songs are genuinely funny.' - Broadway Baby 'Andy is a real master of the stage and damned good at what he does.' - Mumble Comedy
