Mitch Benn is the 37th Beatle combines Mitch Benn's Scouse upbringing, his love of music, and a lifelong obsession with Liverpool's most famous sons in one show.

Mitch Benn was born in Liverpool in January 1970. Three months later the Beatles broke up. Coincidence? Yes.

50 years on from the release of Please Please Me, Mitch explores the enduring legacy of the Fab Four and shamelessly milks his own (incredibly tenuous) connection to them.

Adapted from Mitch's hit Edinburgh show, Mitch Benn is the 37th Beatle is a glorious mix of spot-on Beatles parodies, trivia and an endearingly personal account of his own claim to the title of 'The Fifth Beatle'.
