Rhys James is an accomplished comedian, writer and actor. At 27 he has already made numerous TV appearances, on shows such as Mock The Week (BBC2), Roast Battle, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and many more. He has performed four solo shows at the Edinburgh fringe to complete sell-out audiences and critical acclaim, earning his 2017 show ‘Forgives’ a spot in the British Comedy Guide’s ‘Best Reviewed Shows of the Fringe’ list. His first Radio 4 series, ‘Rhys James is…’ was met with great acclaim and he has just had another radio series commissioned for 2019. He is also known for his prolific Twitter feed which has been recommended in The Telegraph, The Sun, Huffington Post, The Poke and The Gentleman’s Journal among others.
Rhys hosted a weekly show on The Football Republic for 2 years called ‘Top 10 Football F**k Ups’ which garnered a weekly audience of well over 150,000 viewers, as well as a weekly segment on BBC2's 'The Premier League Show' called 'Rhys's Pieces'.
