Rhys James 



Well, well, well. If it isn't Rhys James, the guy who said comedy shows are for losers and blurbs are for idiots. Back here with another comedy show, as explained in this blurb. Unbelievable. As seen on Mock the Week, Russell Howard's Stand Up Central and Virtually Famous. ‘A cut above his humdrum peers’ **** (Independent). ‘Sickeningly talented’ **** (Time Out).

‘Physically unimpressive’ **** (Scotsman). ‘A frighteningly good stand-up comedian... I think he could be really huge’ (Doc Brown Guardian). One of the best reviewed comedy shows of 2016..
