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.
Paired with comedian John Robins, Ellis also presents a weekly show on Radio X. In addition, their podcast, The Elis James and John Robins’ Show, has become cult listening – gaining them a devoted following, over 14-million downloads and a regular fixture in the podcast charts – and the pair have even written a book together!

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.
