A comedy show about trying to be a little better.

Stand-up comedian Si Beckwith has the same resolution every year: ‘Get Lush’. Sometimes he fails at this, but he tries. This comedy show is about trying to be a little better, and why trying is what it’s all about.

Expect jokes, stories and a lot of uses of the word ‘lush’. There’s also a bit with drawings. It’s mostly, though, just a silly boy trying his hardest.

‘Get Lush’ could mean going to the gym more, reading more books or, most often, just buying a leather jacket and some fags. Si Beckwith tries to do all of these things, and sometimes falls short, but he’ll get lush or - well, not quite die trying, but probably get out of breath a bit.

Support comes from rising comedy talent and BBC Newcastle and BBC Tees Radio Host (Grin Up North Show) Louise Young.

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
