‘the cheers from an enraptured crowd are deafening…Now, tickets for their live shows sell out across the country within hours of going on sale.’

Sophie Zeldin-O’Neill, The Guardian

Due to popular demand and following a successful sold-out run of live performances back in December 2022, the much-loved comedy double-act and acclaimed broadcasters/podcasters Elis James (Fantasy Football League) and John Robins (Live at the Apollo and Edinburgh Comedy Award winner) have announced extra dates for their hit show Made Up Games. The duo will perform an additional three shows live on stage at London’s historic Bloomsbury Theatre from 17th-19th April.

For eight years, Elis and John have been battling it out on the radio playing the sensational games their legion of loyal listeners made up for them and now they’re returning to London’s Bloomsbury Theatre once again with even more special guests and low budget prizes.

Guest stars from the first run of shows included Vick Hope (Vick Hope’s Breakfast Show, Going Home with Vick and Jordan), Lou Sanders (Taskmaster, Mel Giedroyc’s Unforgivable), Rose Matafeo (Starstruck, Taskmaster), Ivo Graham (Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week), Sunil Patel (This Time With Alan Partridge, This Way Up) and Matt Lucas (Fantasy Football League, The Great British Bake Off).

The duo’s comedic chemistry and quick wit has won them a loyal fanbase and they have been playing Made Up Games on the radio since the days of their hugely successful Xfm show, and the format has grown with them and remained a firm favourite with audiences.

Tickets go on pre-sale Friday 27th January at 10am for Elis & John’s Facebook fan page and then on general sale on Monday 30th January at 10am from The Bloomsbury Theatre
