Birthday Girls House Party Podcast Live: Underbelly Festival, Cavendish Square, London, 2021
I have seen Welsh comedian Elis James several times live on stage. When he played Always Be Comedy in 2016, he was very confident on stage with his smooth, calming voice and composure making him a captivating act to watch, particularly as he was unafraid of eye contact with individual audience members. He immediately caught the attention of the room and never faltered.
In August 2021, he was the guest for the Birthday Girls House Party Podcast Live that I saw at the Underbelly Festival in London, The unpredictable comic stories of everyday life were simply told and delivered with a great knowledge of language and humour.
