Live at the Electric - Lucy Beaumont (comedian) - Netflix

Lucy Beaumont (born 1983) is a British stand-up comedian from Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire. Her act is based largely on stereotypes about Hull and the wider Northern England region. She won the BBC Radio New Comedy Award in 2012 and was a finalist on So You Think You're Funny in 2011.

Beaumont grew up in the Spring Bank area of Hull and later lived in the village of Hessle, near Hull with her mother, playwright Gill Adams. She once worked at the meat counter of Asda in Hessle Road, West Hull. She attended Wyke 6th form college. Although she had a brief acting career, she switched to comedy in an attempt to conquer stage fright in preparation for an acting career and was inspired by her sitcom-like life in Hull. Her first gig was for the 2011 So You Think You're Funny competition, for which she would later become a finalist.
