Join us on Friday 2nd July and hear the brilliant comedian Tez Ilyas giving his hilarious, moving and enlightening reflections on what it was like to come of age as a Muslim in 90s Britain. 

You may know and love Tez from his stand-up comedy, his role as Eight in Man Like Mobeen, his Radio 4 series TEZ Talks, or panel shows such as Mock the Week and The Last Leg. Where you won't know him from is 1997 when he was 13 ¾....
