Tez Ilyas: Made in Britain

Tez Ilyas' latest stand-up show explores the difficulties of being a British Asian man in modern-day Britain.

21 March 2017 – 25 March 2017 | Visit website

One of British comedy’s most exciting rising stars, Tez Ilyas presents his second stand-up show Made in Britain. It sold out every single performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 and gained spectacular critical acclaim.

Tez reveals that he is openly… Asian. British Asian as well, which means that because he’s Asian he loves a chicken tikka masala, whereas, because he’s British he… well he loves a chicken tikka masala. Tez has started to think on his British-ness, especially because over the last year he’s felt judged as both a Muslim and an Asian.

Tez feels stuck between a rock (the traditional cultural values of his family) and a hard place (the liberal champagne socialists he now hangs out with), when truth be told he doesn’t fit in with either. In addition to issues of identity, he’s a cheeky, arrogant narcissist with deep-seated insecurities… yay comedy! He wonders why this is. Particularly as last year Tez experienced something that changed everything for him…

Made in Britain will be performed by Tez Ilyas at Soho Theatre 21 – 25 March. Find out more and book tickets here.
