Arthur Smith brings his brand new show, Laughs, Stories, A Song and a Poem, to Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax on Friday 27th September.
Described as an ‘alternative comedian’, Smith has shaken up the world of light entertainment. He’ll be cramming his set full of jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs and readings from his memoir My Name is Daphne Fairfax. I’ll be honest, I’ve not seen Arthur Smith before but it does sound like it’ll be a good night and, given that he sold out at the same venue a few years ago, it seems the people of Halifax will be right behind it.
I have heard of his play An Evening with Gary Lineker, and he’s made countless appearances on TV shows, so he’ll be a natural funny man on stage.
He’ll be joined by comedian and writer Nick Ahad. It’s my mission to see him live before the end of next year because I’m a big fan of his work.
There are a host of well-known names, faces and voices coming to Square Chapel this autumn season. Others include BBC’s David Harper, politician Alan Johnson, author David Constantine, hilarious duo Frisky & Mannish, actor Clinton Baptiste, I, Daniel Blake’s Dave Johns, Boycie from Only Fools and Horses, comedian Mark Thomas, Poet, playwright and Broadcaster Lemn Sissay and comedian Lucy Beaumont.
