Joe Lycett is a multi-award winning comedian, and is one of the country’s best-loved stand-ups, enjoying three sell out UK and Ireland tours, scooping two Chortle Awards and an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination for his warm, sardonic brand of comedy.

He has hosted Live at the Apoll, The One Show and Sunday Brunch and also appeared on a range of shows including 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Would I Lie To You?, Taskmaster and Roast Battle. He hosts BBC Radio 4’s It’s Not What You Know and created Joe Lycetts’ Obsessions for the same station, and in 2016 released his debut book, Parsnips, Buttered (Hodder & Staughton).

In the summer of 2018, a piece of his artwork was accepted into the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition - a clay and acrylic head he named Chris, priced at £12.5 million (proof of funds required before purchase).

As well as taking up hosting duties of The Great British Sewing Bee, Joe fronts new BBC One Saturday night show The Time It Takes, and will deliver consumer justice in new Channel 4 series Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back.
