Comedian Lloyd Griffith tour is coming to Hull



After Lloyd’s last tour was interrupted by ‘you know what’ and ended up lasting 8 years or
so, he’s BACK with a brand-new, fresh stand-up show for 2023. This is his biggest tour to
date, and he is pumped / really needs you to come. Since school Lloyd has always been a
show off, doing anything he can to make people laugh, and 20-odd years later, nothing’s
changed. There’ll be his unique bag of stand up, dubious impressions, and obviously a
sprinkling of his (incredible) singing. Lloyd Griffith is: One Tonne of Fun.

Lloyd was recently one of the first national anthem singers to sing the new anthem (with
‘King’ instead of ‘Queen’) at various football matches around the country. As a boy, he
always wanted to play for Grimsby Town FC, but instead he was able to perform on the
pitch before the Grimsby v Crewe Alexandra match, to a packed crowd. Lloyd will be appearing in several new shows in early 2023. Firstly, the new series of Bad Education for BBC Three.

He’ll also be seen in the hotly anticipated drama series Nolly, for ITV Studios, about the
famous soap opera Crossroads, playing the part of Paul Henry – the actor who portrayed
the popular role of Benny in the series. Starring Helena Bonham Carter, the mini-series
was written by Russell T Davies, directed by Peter Hoar (It’s A Sin) and executive-
produced by Nicola Schindler.

Lloyd is also set to appear in the upcoming Channel 4 comedy Everyone Else Burns,
produced by JAX Media and Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio
Group. Warm, full of heart and, above all, funny, Everyone Else Burns follows a hyper-
religious family navigating their way through the modern world whilst avoiding eternal

He has just launched new comedy podcast Fit & Proper, with fellow comedian Rhys
James, where they invite a famous guest to take over a football club and rebuild it however
they like, from changing the kit and the mascot to insisting all the players have a
moustache for no reason.

Lloyd also co-hosted Soccer AM for Sky with John ‘Fenners’ Fendley and Jimmy Bullard,
and co-hosted Netflix comedy-entertainment show Flinch with Seann Walsh and Desiree
Burch. He also fronted documentary Can You Beat The Bookies?, in which explored the
gambling industry.

You will have also seen Lloyd in series 1 and 2 of Ted Lasso, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Comedy
Central at The Comedy Store, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club, Roast Battle, Question of
Sport, Not Going Out, Richard Osman’s House of Games, and loads of other stuff. He
was also Jack Whitehall’s arena tour support.
“What is evident from the outset is that Griffith is bursting with talent. He is a funny,
charming, self-effacing comic who very obviously gains great joy from making people
laugh. It is evident in the way he feeds off the audience” – joe.co.uk

“Useful idiot” – The Guardian

“It’s not often you get a comic and a choirboy rolled into one, and he’s seriously talented in

both areas” – Leicester Mercury

“Lloyd bounces off the audience and has everyone laughing along with him. This is an hour
of uplifting stand-up that’ll have you smiling for days. A warm, relatable and hilarious show”

– The Sunday Post

Lloyd will be in Hull on Wednesday 1st February, at Hull Truck Theatre
