Arthur Smith – Laughs, Stories, a Song and a Poem

Fri 27 Sep, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £16 (£14 concessions)

Join comedian, writer, broadcaster and all-round British institution ARTHUR SMITH and 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 in the nineteen eighties and nineties.

Expect an evening of sublime playfulness, crammed with jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs (at least 1 from Leonard Cohen) and readings from his recently published memoir ‘My Name Is Daphne Fairfax’ which has won praise from literary critics. He will also tell the story, as well as a portrait of his late father PC Sad Smith, survivor of Colditz POW camp and London copper.

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’. He is a ‘Spirit of The Fringe’ award-winning Edinburgh Festival stalwart and Olivier nominated playwright for ‘An Evening With Gary Lineker’

Arthur is simply one of our funniest and most original comic performers and is guaranteed to bring you a night of hilarity, mirth and scandal…with a touch of rudeness thrown in for good measure.
