You don’t have to be a massive fan of The Beatles to enjoy a new show which will be performed at The Dukes.

Comedian Mitch Benn, who claims he is the 37th Beatle, brings his comedy show to the Lancaster theatre, which combines his Scouse upbringing with his love of music and a lifelong obsession with Liverpool’s most famous sons.

It is most definitely not a tribute show and while his affection for his subjects is well documented, expect the satirical twists for which Mitch is well known.

Mitch Benn is not only one of the most sought-after acts on the comedy circuit but also is widely acknowledged as one of the best writer/performers of comic songs in the country.

Since his comedy career began 20 years ago, he has established himself as a comedy club headliner and is a regular writer and performer on national radio and television.

The awardwinning performer has also released several albums, has toured extensively abroad and is a past winner of the Best New Comic award at the Glastonbury Festival where he has played ever since.

Tickets for Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle, taking place this Saturday (October 25) and recommended for anyone aged 16 plus, are £14/£12 concessions (a £1 per transaction fee applies when booking online).

For more information and to book, ring The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org.

Aside from the Mitch Benn show, The Dukes’ autumn comedy season also includes Richard Herring (October 31); Paul Chowdry (November 19); Tommy Tiernan (December 5) and Katherine Ryan (December 11).
