TEZ Ilyas, one of the most celebrated rising stars in British comedy, has delayed his appearance in Bradford for a year.

Tez was due to tour the UK this autumn with his latest show Populist, with a stop-off at the Studio, part of the Alhambra Theatre complex in Bradford.

He will now appear in 2021 November 20.

Join Tez as he uses his trademark silly, smart and subversive approach to pit ordinary people against the establishment – and expect huge laughs, groans and shocks as he confronts the state of the world with cheeky, provocative flair in his best show yet.

In 2015 Tez achieved phenomenal success with his debut stand-up show TEZ Talks. A sell out run at the Soho Theatre and his own BBC Radio 4 series based on the show followed.

Tez then went on to create three series of the hit radio show which was used by the BBC as one of its flagship shows for the launch of BBC Sounds.

In 2016 his highly-anticipated follow up show – Made in Britain – went on to sell out every single performance (including extra shows) at the Edinburgh Fringe, then he earned spectacular

critical acclaim with a ht nationwide tour in 2017.

Tez’s third show – Teztify – once again delivered a spectacularly powerful, provocative and brilliantly funny hour of topical stand up, delivering to packed out audience’s night after night.

Tez has since appeared on multi award winning Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three) which returned for a third series this year, as well as Live at The Apollo (BBC Two), The Last Leg (C4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live From the BBC (BBC Two), Live from the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Kevin Hart’s Live from Montreal (LOL Network), Virtually Famous (E4) and The Now Show (BBC Radio 4).

He has also starred in both his own Channel 4 comedy – Blap, Bounty – which has become the most watched show in the format’s ten-year history, and fronted his own satirical entertainment series, The Tez O’Clock Show (C4), to huge critical acclaim.
