Arthur Smith’s Syd (solo show)

Policeman Syd (Arthur’s father) – An ordinary man who lived in extraordinary times

In Edinburgh last year, Comedian Arthur Smith led the Smithereens in a musical about his father. Here is the slimmed down Arthur only version

Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a P.O.W., and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany.

In the 1950s PC Syd patrolled London’s South Bank and met a gallery of characters, whom he tried his best not to arrest.

Arthur tells this 20th Century story with laughter, amazement and a hilarious photo.

Smith’s show was The Times ‘Critic’s Choice for Top Comedy Pick’ and The List ‘Top Tip’ show!
