Beth Granville.


Agent: Marc Simonsson

Beth started writing and performing her own comedy sketches in Barry, South Wales, when Ruth Jones came across her talent and kickstarted her professional career in comedy, (fair play). Beth appeared in Gavin and Stacey (BBC) and Stella (Sky One). She then had an original dark comedy pilot The Sicilians co-written with Francois Pandolfo and Ben Tyreman, developed with BBC Wales.

Following the huge success of Beth’s debut Play Foiled in 2016 (“The perfect comedy” 5*, The Stage) she went on to reimagine the world for radio. The award nominated sitcom (Best Radio Comedy, Celtic Media Festival) Foiled ran for four series, whilst breaking the record for most downloads for a BBC Wales Comedy on BBC Sounds. So loved was the show that it hosted appearances from a plethora of stars – Miles Jupp, Derek Jacobi, Felicity Montagu, Vicky Vox, Kiell Smith-Bynoe and Ralf Little.

Beth spent 2017 as part of The Comedy Room, the BBC’s development programme for comedy writers and has written on numerous critically acclaimed shows. Most recently, the multi-award nominated The Skewer (Radio 4), Pillar of Salt (for broadcast later this year on Radio 4) and series 4 of the all female sketch show Welcome Strangers (BBC Radio Wales) on which she is a lead writer and also stars in.

Beth has co-written two West End shows premiering at the Vaudeville Theatre, Alyssa Edwards, Memoirs of a Queen (Ru Pauls Drag Race, Netflix Dancing Queen) and Legends of Lockdown, Live! Starring Sean Burke, Rob Madge, Rosie Holt and Austyn Farrell. 

Beth works as a Script Consultant, working on a range of scripts for stand up comedy, tv, film and radio, working most recently with Divina De Campo (Drag Race, The SpongeBob Musical), Josh Pugh (Hypothetical, Question Team), Tom Price (Torchwood, Magic FM). Since stepping back from the acting game, Beth likes to keep sharp by co-hosting a successful podcast Smashing Sundays, with Lucy Pinder, co-hosting a Saturday evening show on BBC Radio Wales with Tom Price and live audience attended readings of new comedy scripts at the Soho House ‘Scripted Hot Seat’ event. She also writes and performs live comedy sketches with Garnon Davies, appearing most recently at The Glee Club and Backyard Comedy.

Beth is currently pitching her new Sitcom Pilot with her producers, Mark Gordon Pictures.
