In the space of a few short years, Elis James has become the face of new Welsh comedy. Cementing his growing TV and radio profile with appearances in both The Comedy Zone and South By South Wales at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe, Elis has been supporting multi-award winner Rhod Gilbert on his massive UK tours and bringing the best of new music to BBC Radio One Wales on a regular basis. His style of laid-back, whimsical storytelling has made him a popular compere and performer with comedy promoters all over the country.
Also a versatile comic actor, Elis’s character creation ‘Rex’ appears every week on Rhod Gilbert’s BBC Radio Wales show and live at Chris Cocoran’s Committee Meetings.
