One of the best-loved performers currently working on the UK circuit, Joe is a rising comedy star with bundles of stage presence and effortless charm. Joe, a 2016 Chortle Award winner for ‘Best Show’, has progressed rapidly since making his stage debut at the Manchester Comedy Store in 2008. Joe’s television appearances include performing stand-up on BBC1’s Live At The Apollo and on ITV’s Sunday Night At The Palladium, as well as regularly starring on panel shows such as Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown. In 2015, Joe was confirmed as the new host of BBC Radio 4’s long-running panel show It’s Not What You Know, and 2017 will see him hosting Comic Relief on BBC1.
His two first shows at Edinburgh Fringe Festival were a huge hit, selling out their full runs and securing Joe a Foster’s Comedy Award Best Newcomer nomination. He returned to Edinburgh in 2015 with That’s The Way, A-Ha, A-Ha, Joe Lycett to huge audience and critical acclaim. He toured the show around the UK in 2016, winning the Chortle Award for Best Show and eventually releasing it on DVD.
