Comedian Joe Lycett Appointed Channel 4's Travel Man

News Image
Comedian Joe Lycett has been appointed Channel 4's new Travel Man.

Richard Ayoade's final, ninth series, will air later this year and Joe will take over for his debut series which will air in 2020.

Each episode takes a sideways look at how visitors might spend 48 hours in some of the world’s most popular mini-break destinations - and for each trip the Travel Man is joined by a well-known travel companion. Richard has previously explored over 40 cities including Copenhagen with Noel Fielding; Hong Kong with Mad Men actor Jon Hamm; Athens with Dawn French; Brussels with Lee Mack; Venice with Jo Brand; St Petersburg with Rob Beckett; and Florence with Hollywood actor Rebel Wilson. Joe himself has even accompanied Richard on a weekend mini-break to Amsterdam.

Speaking about his appointment Joe said: "I'm beyond excited to take over the brilliant, charming show that Richard has nurtured. I'm less excited about the number of times I'm going to have to take off my shoes at Birmingham Airport."
