Lifefulness: Live Life Fully
'What Do People Get From Going To Mosque' - Tez Ilyas - #Ep 58
Tez Ilyas is one of the most celebrated stars in British comedy, an author and an activist.
The guy is also one of a new generation of British Muslims who are public and proud about their heritage. This is all explored in his new book 'The Secret Diary of a British Muslim Aged 13 3/4'.
In this conversation we explore his life, have a laugh and all of that but the thrust of the conversation is to explore what Muslims get from going to mosque. What are the different practices? What does he get from them? How do they make him feel? In a country that is culturally Christian the ins and outs of Muslim life are relatively unknown.
This conversation is a companion to our interview with Liz Oldfield called 'What Do People Actually Get From Church'.
You'll have seen Tez on Live at The Apollo (BBC Two), The Last Leg (C4), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live From the BBC (BBC Two), The Chris Ramsey Show (Comedy Central), Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three), Roast Battle (Comedy Central) and The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice (C4). Tez’ Channel 4 comedy Blap Bounty was the most watched show in the strand’s 10 year history. Oooooh.
