In a one-off seasonal special, comedian couple Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont will be hosting a Christmas getaway in Jon & Lucy’s Christmas Sleepover.
Lucy and Jon will be joined by some of their closest comedy mates to eat, drink and get very merry during the post-Christmas, pre-New Year lull. Joining the pair to enjoy a festive feast will be fellow comedians Roisin Conaty, Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett. With a few surprise guests along the way, the gang will reflect on the highs and lows of 2021, with misbehaviour and chaos sure to ensue in a rollicking, boozy knees-up.
Jon Richardson commented: “The producers of this show are guaranteeing that it will end up in chaos, obviously I will be there to make sure they are proved wrong. I don’t get asked to write the press release so let me take this opportunity to tell you that this festive spectacular will start and end on time and contain an appropriate amount of fun given the year we’ve had and the certainty that next year will be worse."
Lucy Beaumont added: “I am so looking forward to being paid to hang out with old friends...and Jon. I shall be mostly slipping generous size cocktails and blocking out the resentment and negativity that Jon pretends he puts 'on ice' for the festive period. If the night is anything like the parties we throw at home, we peak at awkward conversation at about 8.30pm.
"Jon will go missing at 9pm and come down in some sort of weird nightwear and slippers and the guests will have gone half an hour later.”
Jon & Lucy’s Christmas Sleepover is produced by Ranga Bee Productions, with Benjamin Green and Romesh Ranganathan as executive producers.
