National and internationally known comedian, writer and broadcaster, Arthur Smith takes centre stage at Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax on Friday 27th September at 7.30pm with his brand new show – Laughs, Stories, A Song and a Poem, as part of their autumn season of events.

Audiences are invited to bask in an evening of laughter and off the wall humour with one of the ‘alternative comedians’ who shook up the world of light entertainment.


Fans can expect an evening of sublime playfulness, crammed with jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs and readings from Smith’s recently published memoir ‘My Name Is Daphne Fairfax’ which has won praise from literary critics.


A BBC regular, well-known for his appearances on TV’s ‘Grumpy Old Men’, ‘Q.I.’, ‘Have I Got News For You’, ‘The One Show’, Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’, ‘Balham Bash’, and host of Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club, and Radio 2’s ‘Smith Lectures’.
