Details for Tez Ilyas's 2020 tour which will culminate with a show at Blackburn's King George's Hall have been announced.

The 'Populist' tour will begin on 11 September 2020 at the ARC, Stockton and conclude on 28 November 2020, in Blackburn.

In 2015, Ilyas achieved 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 created three series of the hit radio show and it 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 at the Edinburgh Fringe and gained spectacular critical acclaim, with a smash hit nationwide tour in 2017.

His 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 is back with series three early next year, Live at The Apollo (BBC Two) and The Last Leg (C4)

He has also starrred in both his own Channel 4 comedy Blap, Bounty - which has become the most watched show in the format’s 10 year history – and fronted his own satirical entertainment series, The Tez O’Clock Show (C4).

Tickets for Tez Ilyas: Populist go on sale Friday 15 November 2019 and are available here
