About the Show Less...

The true story of a scouser who nearly had a fight with the Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi. Read More >

Despite threats from his wife and bank manager, in May 2005 middle-aged Kenny Noonan travelled to Istanbul to watch Liverpool play AC Milan in the Champions’ League final. He carried the scars of 30 years as a Red and of living in a city which has been demonised.

What happened to Liverpool FC in the second half is legend. What happened to Kenny in the AC Milan directors’ box is stranger than fiction.

Beating Berlusconi! is based on the now famous true story of a scouser who ended up sitting next to the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi at the Attaturk Stadium. When Liverpool equalised and the Italian babe magnet lost his sense of humour, Kenny almost had a fight with him.

Paul Duckworth plays 40 characters in this touching political comedy.
