Hyena Lounge Comedy Club - Saturday Night Lounge: Elis James, John Robins, Special Guest Comedian
"Every Saturday we bring you four of the funniest stand-up comedians from around the world to our friendly and intimate venue in a two and a half hour long laughter-fest aimed at comedy fans, couples and small groups.
We are NOT suitable for large single sex groups such as Stag or Hen parties
We operate a strict NO FANCY DRESS policy and the maximum group size we allow is 12. Please don't try to get round this by booking separately as you will be refused admission without a refund and we'd all rather avoid this embarrassment on the door!
OVER 18 ONLY"

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).

'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (The Skinny)
