Never miss another 'Gareth Richards' show
Gareth Richards, Lucy Beaumont, A Top Secret TV Headliner
An amazing way to round off the season, as a top TV comedian trials new material in a special work-in-progress show, alongside two absolutely amazing young comedians.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee 2010, Gareth Richards is probably best known for his two years of co-hosting the Sony Gold Award winning Frank Skinner's Absolute Radio Show. In 2011 he completed a Soho Theatre run of his Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominated show, Stand Up Between Song, and appeared on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC Three).
In 2010, he was placed in the top 10 of Dave's Funniest Joke of the Fringe. In 2008 Gareth was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award, and later won a place as part of the Comedy Reserve.
Previously he was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2007 competition, and a runner-up in the finals of You Must Be Joking and the Amused Moose Laugh-Off.
'Gorgeously low-key, faintly surreal songs played on the Omnichord... A delightful hour of comedy' (The Guardian)
'He’s a quietly clever craftsman with a big future' (Bruce Dessau, The Evening
'An effortlessly assured act... exceptionally inspired and truly memorable... His material has a delicious otherworldly quality' (Chortle).

Lucy is a hugely talented comedy actress and writer. She was nominated in 2014 for Best Newcomer at the Fosters Comedy Awards for her debut show We Can work
It Out. In 2012 she was the winner of The BBC New Comedy Award and won the Chortle Award For Best Newcomer. Lucy was a finalist in the Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year 2013 and in August 2011 she was also ranked joint third in the Gilded Balloon's nationwide stand-up comedy competition So You Think You're Funny?.
'She has that intangible something that gives her an innately charismatic stage
presence. She's slight and vulnerable, a bit ditzy, and utterly charming... A star is born' (Chortle)
'Perfect for the times' (The Guardian)
'She's got the timing of Les Dawson... an absolute natural' (Johnny Vegas)
'Devastating comic timing' (The Stage)
'The next Victoria Wood in the making' (Arthur Smith)
'The stage Beaumont is a riot!' (The Scotsman).
