Joe Lycett at the 2009 Chortle Student Comedy Awards final

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Joe Lycett has a delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience. Back that with some fine observational material and you have a winning set. Confident, but not cocky, this relative newcomer playfully mocks an Amazon customer’s review of the Complete Works Of Shakespeare before regaling the audience with first-hand tales of working in a theatre, scoring a minor but important victory over a snooty customer and getting mischievous over the Tannoy.

Other acts of similar standing may have sharper gags than Lycett, but his complete package of innate comic charm and warm wit is very appealing.
