Alasdair Beckett-King, The Attic, Totton, and Salisbury Arts Centre

AWARD-winning comic and children’s author Alasdair Beckett-King is set to visit Totton and Salisbury as part of his Nevermore tour.

With appearances on Mock The Week, a debut performance on Comedy Central Live and an upcoming debut on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown later this year, Alasdair Beckett-King will bring his sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show Nevermore to The Attic in Totton, and then to Salisbury Arts Centre on Saturday.

As the author of two children’s books he is uniquely poised to draw parallels between the history of the ever-shrinking British Isles, and his own childhood in the swinging 1990s.

He won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2017 and garnered a very enthusiastic critical response plus Amused Moose Comedy Award nomination with his debut Edinburgh show of the same year. Alongside his TV appearances and YouTube fame, he has featured on BBC radio as a comedian and sketch writer, and performed stand-up across the UK, at Glastonbury, Citadel Fest, the Udderbelly Southbank and the Fringe. He once won a student RTS award and was nominated for a Student Oscar, but quit filmmaking for stand-up on realising it was a cheaper medium in which to be unsuccessful.

His sold-out Edinburgh Fringe show Nevermore poses important questions like: what are train guards actually guarding; why wasn’t Jaws set in County Durham; and does his hair do that on its own?

Sea levels have been rising Alasdair’s whole life. But for the first 16 years he was getting taller, so he didn’t notice. Now 6ft 2ins, Alasdair is the only comedian brave enough to speak out against the North Sea.

Out of the swirling maelstrom he steps, his sword of jokes, his shield of mischief and his armour made of a third amusing thing.

Alasdair Beckett-King, Nevermore will be at The Attic, Totton, on Friday 12th April and then at Salisbury Arts Centre on Saturday 13th April. For more information and tickets visit https://theatticsouthampton.co.uk or www.wiltshirecreative.co.uk
