“Beaumont brings a freshness and an original flourish to each yarn… she has such a laser-guided eye for comic detail”

Bruce Dessau, The Evening Standard ★★★★


BAFTA nominated comedian, Taskmaster star, co-host of chart topping podcast Perfect Brains, and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Lucy Beaumont, has just announced she is adding a special show at London’s Palladium Theatre on Friday 4th October to the third leg of her already extended debut UK tour of stand-up show ‘The Trouble and Strife’, bringing the tour up to 79 dates across the UK. The news arrives as Sky Comedy have announced a stand-up special for the hit show that will air later this year. Tickets go on sale on Friday 12th July, and can be found at


The award-winning comic is going to let loose and let slip on her rollercoaster world overflowing with off-beat stories, unusual anecdotes, and bizarre journeys through modern day womanhood. Life through the Beaumont lens is more surreal than you could ever imagine.


Known for her sharp, witty and eccentric view on everyday life, Sky Comedy have announced that they air Lucy’s debut filmed stand-up special of ‘The Trouble and Strife’ later this year. Beaumont is best known for starring in and writing the fictional sitcom of her marriage Meet the Richardsons (Dave) which won Best Comedy Programme at the Broadcast Digital Awards, is currently on air with its fifth series, and was described as “occupying the sweet spot between Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Only Way is Essex” by The Times. Beaumont has also created and co-written Hullraisers, the six-part female led comedy series which launched on Channel 4 last year. On the airwaves Beaumont is the writer and star of BBC Radio 4’s To Hull and Back.


Regularly featured on our screens, Beaumont has appeared on The Wheel (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), The Chris & Rosie Ramsey Show (BBC One), Celebrity Bake Off (C4), Would I Lie To You (BBC), The Last Leg (C4), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (C4), Ranganation (BBC), Guessable (Dave), Celebrity Gogglebox (C4), Big Zuu’s Big Eats (Dave), One Night In… (C4), QI (BBC Two), Drunk History (Comedy Central), Jonathan Ross Show (ITV), Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave), Ultimate Worrier (Dave), The One Show (BBC One), Cats Does Countdown (C4), Live At The Electric (BBC Three), and is currently on air as one of the latest contestants to star in hit show Taskmaster (Channel 4).


On stage, Beaumont’s stand-up career has garnered huge critical acclaim with her Edinburgh Festival Fringe runs which have seen her receive numerous accolades including being nominated for the Best Newcomer Award with her debut Edinburgh show, We Can Twerk It Out. Her stand-up has also seen her win BBC’s New Comedy Award as well as a Chortle Award for Best Newcomer. As a writer, Beaumont is the author of the part-memoir-part-comedy book Drinking Custard: The Diary of a Confused Mum was published by Octopus Publishing in 2021.
