Alasdair Beckett-King: Nevermore

Alasdair Beckett-King has announced a new tour for 2024: ‘Nevermore’

With several viral internet hits, 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, two sensational children’s books and a sell-out UK tour earlier this year under his (vegan leather) belt, Alasdair Becket King is thrilled to be taking his total sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show “Nevermore” on tour across the UK, playing 23 dates from March to May 2024.

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 6″2, Alasdair Beckett-King is the only comedian brave enough to speak out against that wet bastard: The North Sea.

 Nevermore is more than an anti-sea diatribe. As a 500 year old man ABK is uniquely poised to draw parallels between the history of the ever- shrinking British Isles, and his own childhood in the swinging 1990s. The multi award- winning stand-up comedian unravels some of life’s shallowest mysteries:

  • What are train guards actually guarding?
  • Why wasn’t Jaws set in County Durham?
  • Does his hair do that on its own?
