Beth Granville is a comedy writer and performer from South Wales. If you need mind blowing Welsh Cakes look way past Beth and ask her brother.
Beth has worked across a huge range of comedy disciplines throughout her career. From the Edinburgh Fringe to appearing in Gavin & Stacey (BBC) and Stella (Sky One). Her award nominated sitcom (Best Radio Comedy, Celtic Media Festival) Foiled has run for four series, whilst breaking the record for most downloads for a BBC Wales Comedy on BBC Sounds. So loved was the show it has hosted appearances from a plethora of stars – Miles Jupp, Derek Jacobi, Felicity Montagu and Ralf Little.
Beth spent 2017 as part of The Comedy Room, the BBCs development programme for comedy writers and has written on numerous critically acclaimed shows. Most recently, the multi-award nominated The Skewer (Radio 4) by Jon Holmes, Age of Outrage (BBC 2 Wales), Welcome Strangers (BBC Radio Wales), Relocation (BBC Radio Wales) and Wales at the Edinburgh Fringe (BBC Two).
With a passion for the art of script work and developing work from concept to page and often stage – for example Foiled’s journey from the fringe (“The perfect comedy” 5*, The Stage) – this year Beth has co-written two West End shows premiering at the Vaudeville Theatre, Alyssa Edwards, Memoirs of a Queen (Ru Pauls Drag Race, US Season 5) and Legends of Lockdown, Live!. She was also part of the writing and creative team behind The Vicky Vox Project (web series feat. Vicky Vox, and Raven-Symone).
Beth co-host’s a successful podcast Smashing Sundays with Lucy Pinder, whilst also preforming live sketches with Garnon Davies at Backyard Comedy and a room above a pub that looks like the inside of a clown’s pocket. Hey, comedy has to start somewhere… ‘Inside A Clown’s Pocket’ might be her next big hit.
