Reading Comedy Festival: The Committee Meeting: Chris Corcoran, Elis James
Chris Corcoran and Elis James, two of Wales’ finest talents, join forces to tour the UK with the exceptional Radio Wales and BBC Three Comedy Feeds show, The Committee Meeting
Chris takes on the role of Mr Chairman and Elis plays the pedantic caretaker, Rex Jones. Set in a working men's club in the Valleys, they try and tackle the everyday issues of a working Welshman.
All who attend are part of the committee and will have a point to be made.
'Character comedy of the sloppiest, yet most satisfying kind' (Sunday Express)
'Warm performers with a delicious wit' (The Stage).
Previous winner of ITV's 'Take The Mike' comedy competition.
Chris Corcoran 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).
