Gags galore with veteran comic Arthur

COMEDIAN, writer, broadcaster and all-round British institution Arthur Smith will offer up an evening of laughter and off-the-wall humour in the Memorial Hall at Sheffield City Hall on Sunday, October 16.

Appearing as part of the Grin Up North 2011 line-up, audiences can expect an evening crammed with jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs and readings from his recently published memoir My Name Is Daphne Fairfax, which has won praise from literary critics.

Throughout his career as a comedian, Smith has become a BBC regular, 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 Radio 2’s The Arthur Smith Lectures.
