I saw Rhys James in January 2018 at Always Be Comedy where he has played many times and as ever his gag-hit rate was extremely high. He always has me in fits of laughter at his clever jokes, routines and observational ideas. James is a regular on the comedy circuit and has rapidly become a great comedian.
I saw the brilliant comic appear again at Always Be Comedy in September 2018. The audience easily associated with him easily through displaying lots of charm, comic talent and by the way he puts together a set which featured amongst other things stale relationships.
He returned to Always Be Comedy in March 2019 where he was deservedly top of the bill producing a routine of very clever new material. I met him after the show and told him that I was due to see him again in quick succession on the Headliners bill. He told me that he would try and change the material around, but he needn’t have worried. The audience loved his over analytical style and delivery as he mercilessly rattled off gag after gag involving the front row of the audience, his relationship with his new girlfriend and his mum.
I saw James perform a ten-minute set for Edinburgh Comedy Allstars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019 where the late-night crowd loved his style of humour and he went down a storm. James did a further set for Always Be Comedy in September 2019 and his separate routines about a murder mystery evening and the act of bathing were priceless.
James is a favourite on the comedy circuit, always worth seeing and has rapidly become a great comedian.
