Joe Lycett to host a brand new live Friday night comedy show for Channel 4

The Joe Lycett Live Show will come live from Birmingham with a live audience and celebrity guests.

The new five-part series, broadcast live from his hometown of Birmingham, follows the success of Joe Lycett’s Big Pride Party which aired on Channel 4 in 2022.

Each Friday, Joe will be joined by a mix of his community of local legends, LGBTQ+ heroes and allies, alongside celebrities and big-name guests from the worlds of comedy, television, music and film.

With inclusivity and fun at its heart, the series promises to see Joe take a look back at the week in a way only he can, combining his unique brand of mischief and mayhem with his singular style of comedy.

Shot on the banks of Birmingham’s canals, The Joe Lycett Live Show will bring a touch of Hollywood sparkle to Digbeth in a big night of unmissable entertainment.

Speaking about the new show, Joe Lycett said "I’m absolutely psyched and naturally very nervous about hosting a weekly live show from Birmingham, but it has been a dream of mine for many years and I look forward to some (controlled) late night chaos."

The Joe Lycett Live Show will be co-produced by Rumpus Media and My Options Were Limited, and has been commissioned by Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment, and Steven Handley and Tom Beck, Commissioning Editors, for Channel 4.

It is Executive Produced by Ian Wimbush, Emily Hudd and Tim Dean for Rumpus Media. The series producer is Lisa Kirk and the production exec is Sarah Croker.

Emily Hudd, joint MD at Rumpus Media, said "We are so excited that Joe is hosting this series from the centre of his universe – Birmingham – creating a truly inclusive show to which everyone is invited. It’s a weekly celebration uniquely curated by Joe that harnesses both his mischief but also his warmth - it will be funny, silly and explicitly Joe Lycett."

To which Commissioning Editor Steve Handley added "We are thrilled that Joe will be bringing his personal brand of mayhem to Friday nights and can’t wait to see his take on the events of the week, live from the canal banks of Birmingham."

The Joe Lycett Live Show will air later this year on Channel 4
