Rhys James: Forgives

Written by Callum Moorin

Rhys James’ latest show delves into what it’s like being young, white millennial comedian – being self aware of that privilege while also trying to tackle it’s downfalls.

The show covers his viewpoint of multiple generations, from the baby boomers to generation rent – there’s something for everyone on offer. The narrative of the show is threaded nicely through the hour for a climax bringing it all together, leaving with a sense of satisfaction.

Each year, Rhys James’ new hour is building and building. Everything is becoming better, from the poems to silly set pieces about random words, we can’t wait to see what he comes back with next year!

Rhys James: Forgives is going on tour throughout 2016 & 2017. For dates, please visit
