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.
