I’m Tez Ilyas, a stand-up comedian from Lancashire. In my debut Fringe show, TEZ Talks, I endow the audience as potential converts to Islam (yes really!) and give them a ‘Talk’ on how to integrate effectively into British society.
What is the first thing people notice about you?
My eyes, and probably right now my beard too!
6 things you can’t live without during the Fringe?
The Mosque Kitchen; 2. Satchel; 3. Laptop; 4. Friends; 5. Berocca; and 6. Flyerers!
Who are your Edinburgh Fringe Crushes this year?
Erm… I’m gonna go with who I admire rather than who I fancy… Dane Baptiste, Sarah Callaghan, Harriet Kemsley, Fern Brady and Nish Kumar.
Your darkest Fringe secret?
It wouldn’t much of a dark secret if I told you right?
