The Best In Live Stand-Up Comedy : Elis James, Jim Tavare, Kevin McCarthy, Mike Bubbins
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
In 2017 comedian Jim Tavaré (BAFTA-award winner, Harry Potter actor & double bassist) was involved in a near fatal head-on automobile collision in Los Angeles. Returning to the Fringe for the first time in 20 years, he tells the story of how a quick trip to the shops changed his life forever. Don’t worry, it’s a comedy show.
“One of the funniest and most original performers around.” (The Independent)
“The iconic deadpan master with timing to die for” (Al Murray)
Jim Tavare tour dates
'Jokes, skits, the most ridiculous impressions in history, the odd poem, some prayers, and anything else that springs to mind, in a style described by many as unique and many others as undescribeable.' (Glee)
'The Ad Lib Expert' (The Stage).
Kevin McCarthy 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!
