Beth Vyse is a critically acclaimed actor, writer, performer and director from Cheshire.
After treading the boards across the globe for two seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company , working at numerous national theatres, and TV show such as Spooks, A Touch Of Frost & Holby City, Beth’s career suddenly had to stop. At 28 she discovered she had breast cancer and decided to move into Comedy, an area she’d always wanted to work in. She created a surreal, sublime and completely ridiculous take on the world, underpinned with a brilliant and unique acting style. In 2015 Beth was given the 5 years all clear and created a very special show which won her much praise and has gone on to tour the world : "As Funny as Cancer"
Having performed with others at the Edinburgh Fringe for a number of years, Beth decided to go it alone in 2012 and hasn't looked back. Her shows ‘Going Dark!’ and ‘Get Up With Hands’ are now reaching cult status. She is also the “queen pin” of Weirdos Comedy Club “the closet thing to a modern day comic strip we have” - Chortle.
She regularly lectures at LAMDA and runs a weekly comedy class entitled 'Finding The Funny' with help from guest tutors (and Edinburgh Comedy Award Winners) John Kearns and Richard Gadd. You can catch her on the circuit at The Soho Theatre, The Pleasance, Sabotage, Knock 2 Bag, ACMS, her own night 'Vyse Squad' and as part of the Weirdos collective.
