Becky Lucas – Semi Permanent Sydney 2022

Becky Lucas is a writer and stand-up comedian. Becky quickly gained recognition by exploding onto the comedy scene in the 2013 National RAW Comedy finals and since then has been unstoppable.

Becky has performed solo shows to sold out crowds across Australia & New Zealand and also overseas as Becky made her Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2018 and the same year went on to perform her solo show live at the Sydney Opera House as part of Just for Laughs Sydney Festival. Becky had another success with her 2019 show Um, Support Me?! rounding off the tour performing alongside some of the biggest names of comedy at the prestigious Just For Laughs Montreal.
When she’s not on stage, Becky is all over the small screen. In 2019, Becky made her television debut in the United States of America on Conan O’Briens late-night talk show Conan, which also impressively makes Becky the first female Australian to feature on the show. Previous TV appearances include a much sought after spot on the ABC TV’s 2018/2019 Oxfam Gala and Comedy Up Late (both filmed live at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival), hosting ABC2 and Screen Australia's documentary Big Bad Love, as well as appearances on The Comedy Channels Best of the Sydney Fest, JFL’s The Stand Up Series, ABC’s Fancy Boy, Network 10’s Hughesy We Have A Problem, NZTV 7 Days, Seven Network's Orange is the New Brown, Comedy Centrals Share This (a popular online video series which amassed millions of views) and has been a guest on Seek Treatment, a popular podcast hosted by New York comic Cat Cohen and Pat Regan. In 2020, Becky appeared on the Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival on Stan, Drunk History on Network 10, ABC iView’s Home Alone Tonight hosted by Ray Martin and Amazon Prime’s Last One Laughing with Rebel Wilson.
As a writer, Becky’s credits include co-writing for Matt Okine's semi-autobiographical comedy The Other Guy (Season 1) for Stan, as well as Josh Thomas’s Emmy-nominated show, Please Like Me. A prolific queen tweeter Becky was named as one of Buzzfeed‘s 27 funniest Australian comedians on Twitter but quite controversially got banned off the social media platform for threatening to chop off the prime ministers head. No cause for concern as Becky still keeps busy on Instagram, engaging fans with her weekly newsletter and her podcast with fellow comedian Cameron James who she was asked to co-write, co-create and co-star in, Be Your Own Boss, which screened as a part of the ABC’s Fresh Blood 2018 series.
As a stand up, she’s opened for calibre comics including Conan O’Brien, Nick Kroll, Jim Norton, Beth Stelling and Daniel Tosh and has performed at the prestigious UCB theatre in Los Angeles, The Comedy Cellar in New York and at the iconic Sydney Opera House. 
In 2021, Becky joined Hughesy, We Have a Problem, helping Hughesy weekly with the problem solving line up. Becky also hosted the prestigious 2021 Oxfam Gala for the opening of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival on ABC TV and was a regular panellist on The Hundred with Andy Lee.
Becky’s debut novel, Acknowledgments, is out now through HarperCollins and podcast, The Becky & Cam hotline is streaming on Apple and Spotify. In 2022, Becky will be touring Australia with her new show, So Funny!.
