Erez Tal (Hebrew: ארז טל‎; born July 27, 1961) is an Israeli actor and television host.

Early life[edit]

Erez Ben-Tulila (later Erez Tal) was born in Israel to a father who immigrated from Algeria and to an Israeli-born mother.


His first hit program was "Ma Yesh?" ("What's Up?"), broadcast on Galatz, Israel's IDF Radio, where he started his partnership with Avri Gilad. Tal and Gilad co-hosted TV show "Ha'olam Ha'erev" (The World Tonight) in the early 1990s, broadcast on the then-experimental Channel 2. When Channel 2 became Israel's first commercial television station, Tal hosted and produced the Israeli edition of Wheel of Fortune, and later devised two different program formats: "The Vault" that was sold to several foreign TV stations, and "The Brain".

In 2008, he hosted the Israeli version of the reality show, "Big Brother", named "HaAh HaGadol".[1]

Tal also participates in comedy programs: "Only in Israel", which he created,[2] opposite Orna Banai, and "Night Club" with Maya Dagan and others. He introduced several comedians to wider audiences, notably Assi Azar who co-hosted with him the successful reality format "HaAch HaGadol"; and Guri Alfi who acted in many comedy shows such as "Shiduray Ha'mahapecha" (The Revolution Broadcast).

He was the Israeli commentator at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, the first person providing a Eurovision TV commentary for Israel since 1995.
