The story of an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times, told with love, laughter and song.

Arthur Smith’s hit new show opened to sold-out houses and critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe last year. The comedian, again accompanied by the mellifluous Smithereens, tells the story of his own father.

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.

‘An hour of nostalgia and song that will leave you moved.’
Broadway Baby

Arthur tells this 20th century story with laughter, music (from Ray Davies and others), reflections and a hilarious photo.

 

The Times ‘Critic’s Choice: Top Comedy Pick’ and The List ‘Top Tip’ show.
