Beaumont grew up in Spring Bank area of Hull and later lived in the village of Hessle, near Hull with her mother, playwright Gill Adams. She once worked at the meat counter of Asda in Hessle Road, West Hull.
Although she had a brief acting career, she switched to comedy in an attempt to conquer stage fright in preparation for an acting career and was inspired by her sitcom-like life in Hull. Her first gig was for the 2011 So You Think You're Funny competition, for which she would later become a finalist.
In 2014 Beaumont presented her show We Can Twerk It Out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Beaumont's radio show To Hull and Back received a pilot on BBC Radio 2 in 2014 and a full series was ordered. It was broadcast in 2015 on BBC Radio 4 and was renewed for a second series. It was also played on BBC Radio Humberside later that year.
She won an award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for her show and appeared on BBC One's Live At The Apollo and BBC Three's Live at the Electric. She is known for her observational comedy about her home city of Kingston upon Hull including the local dialect and food like patties and chip spice. In 2015 she starred in and co-wrote the BBC Radio 4 comedy To Hull and Back starring fellow Hull actor Maureen Lipman, she also wrote an article in The Guardian about Hull as it prepared to be UK City of Culture.
