Elis James (Wales) live at the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival.

"This wonderful Welsh wit is always a pleasure to spend time with, and James’ latest show is a joyful hour of lyrical storytelling." - Time Out UK

One of the joys of Welsh stand-up comedy is the unique lyrical quality of the material and the delivery which is just one reason that comedian, Elis James will be a popular addition to the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival.

Elis is one of the bright young things of Welsh comedy, a rising star who has supported fellow countrymen Rhod Gilbert (2007-2009) & Rob Brydon on tour and performed to both critical and popular acclaim at Edinburgh over the last 3 years. He recently supported Stephen Merchant on his ‘Hello Ladies’ tour.

Elis James is truly one to watch - soon to be as big as the talent that he has supported. Elis has enjoyed a stellar career since he started out in 2005 - having earned plaudits on the UK live circuit, he hosted the new act showcase The Comedy Zone at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008, following in the prestigious footsteps of Harry Hill, Stewart Lee and Noel Fielding.

In 2010 Elis toured Australia as part of the Best Of The Edinburgh Fest show - he was latterly part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, which toured the Australian outback.

2011 saw Elis take on a regular panel slot on the BBC Radio 5 Live show The Back End of Next Week, hosted by Nick Hancock. He made his national TV debut on Russell Howard’s Good News and now writes for Stand Up for the Week. He has continued his TV success by appearing on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Daves One Night Stand, The Rob Brydon Show, Show & Tell, Live At The Comedy Store, So This Is Christmas.

He is currently developing shows with Objective & Talkback productions. He also supported Rob Brydon during the making of Rob Brydons Identity Crisis for BBC Four.

"...The stories are like any other family's legends but James' warm and engaging personality is the comic spark that brings them alive." - Scotland On Sunday
"...James is a joy to listen to not just because of his lilting Welsh accent but because of the passion and timing in the way he weaves his narrative." - Chortle
