Asian Persuasion returns to present another tip top line up of the very best in comedy talent in a Leicester Comedy Festival Special
Headlining is Tez Ilyas - sharp and astute crowd-pleasing stand up from this TV and radio regular. Star of BBC Radio 4 and as seen on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, ITV2, Channel 4, E4, Comedy Central and Sky Arts.
'Ilyas has a slickness more reminiscent of US comics, and the gags to back it up, though his most prized asset could yet be his bold, subversive streak' Guardian
''Radiantly entertaining.' Times ★★★★
Supportfrom Bilal Zafar (Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee), Rahul Kohli and Sunil Patel
Previous acts to appear at Asian Persuasion include Romesh Ranganathan, Nish Kumar and Paul Sinha
