Joe Lycett is a stand-up comedian and presenter, best known for his love of sarcasm and practical jokes as well as his appearances on many of the country’s most famous comedy shows.
The 34 year old grew up in Birmingham, before heading to Manchester for university where he got his first experience of doing stand-up. He’s since toured all over the world with his comedy performances and makes regular appearances on TV and radio, which has earned him a reputation as one of the UK’s biggest comedy stars.
But how much has the comedian’s work made him so far? Read on for details on Joe Lycett’s earnings and net worth…
What is Joe Lycett’s net worth?
As of 2022, Joe Lycett has an estimated net worth of around $1.5million or £1.3million, according to allfamousbirthday.com.
Joe started performing stand-up in his university days, where he studied English and Drama at the University of Manchester. In 2009, he was awarded Chortle Student Comedian of the year and soon began performing on the stand-up circuit around the country. His debut stand-up show Some Lycett Hot was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.
Since then, Joe has continued to perform as a comedian, as well as making the move into presenting work. As well as his earnings from comedy, he’s also appeared on shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats, Celebrity Juice, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Would I Lie to You?. He has his own show Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back and has fronted the Great British Sewing Bee as a presenter.
The comedian has gained a reputation for being a bit of a prankster through his work, most recently during a political debate on the BBC where he sarcastically described himself as “extremely right wing” during a discussion about soon-to-be new Prime Minister Liz Truss, explaining: “I know there’s been criticism in the The Mail on Sunday today about leftie liberal wokie comedians on the BBC. I’m actually very right wing and I love it. I thought she gave great clear answers. I know exactly what she’s up to.”
He also infamously changed his name by deed poll to Hugo Boss in protest at the fashion brand in 2020, who he claimed was costing small companies and charities thousands by taking legal action against them if they had a similar brand name.
Joe grew up in Birmingham and lived with his parents up until around 2016 when he got his own place in the King’s Heath area. He travels regularly around the country for work, especially when he is filming in London, but has previously admitted there’s nowhere he’d rather be than his home city. Speaking to Birmingham Living, he’s previously said: “The Birmingham I grew up in was just kind of plodding along but now it is racing ahead, vibrant and exciting. There’s a real buzz.”
