Joe Beasley was a performer who appeared on Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge.
In 1979, Alan Partridge scouted Beasley at a cabaret performance whilst on holiday in Bouremouth and promised to give him a "big break" if he ever got his own TV series. Thus, in 1994, he appeared on Knowing Me, Knowing You, where he attempted an unsuccessful stand-up act with a puppet called "Cheeky Monkey". He repeatedly forgot and mis-delivered his jokes, and was sent off stage.
- In an anecdote about a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Beasley mislabels The Big One (the tallest roller coaster in the world at the time) as The Big Dipper - a famous wooden roller coaster from the same amusement park.
