    Elis James - Do You Remember the First Time? UK Tour 2012

    As seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Rob Brydon Show and Russell Howard's Good News

    One of the most exciting acts to emerge from the Edinburgh Festival in recent years, Elis James won critical praise and a legion of new fans with smash-hit sell out show Do You Remember the First Time? So much so, that the bilingual Welshman has taken his charm offensive on the road with a whirlwind tour of the UK.

    Bringing his hilarious, freewheeling storytelling to a theatre near you, Elis' candid, expertly timed anecdotes will be sure to delight, the warmth and charm of which will have you grinning from ear to ear throughout. Charting a series of 'first times' Elis weaves his audience through a chance encounter with a celebrity, an accident at a wedding and the good old-fashioned drunkenness of others, something more than a few of us can relate to.

    Having performed internationally, supported fellow Welsh export Rhod Gilbert on tour and established a long list of credits including; 8 Out 10 Cats (Channel  4), The Rob Brydon Show (BBC Two), Show and Tell (Channel 4), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three), Dave's One Night Stand (Dave), Radio 5's Back End Of Next Week and BBC Wales' Rhod Gilbert Show, Elis James has cemented himself as one of comedy's brightest young stars.
