The much-loved comedian, writer and broadcaster, Arthur Smith will be taking centre stage in Yorkshire in 2020 as Pocklington Arts Centre welcomes his new stand-up show ‘Arthur Smith – Laughs, Stories, A Song and a Poem.’

Audiences are invited to join the comedian and all-round British institution and bask in an evening of laughter and off-the-wall humour.

Fans can expect an evening of sublime playfulness, crammed with jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs and readings from Smith’s recently published memoir My Name Is Daphne Fairfax, which has won praise from literary critics.

A BBC regular, Arthur is 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’ and ‘Balham Bash’. He’s also the 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.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “We can’t wait to welcome back Arthur to PAC following several sell-outs in recent years. He’s a cult hero at the Ed Fringe for his legendary performances and this new show promises to be a thoroughly entertaining night full of jokes, poems, songs and excerpts from his latest book – it’s the complete package! Arthur is the latest in a series of outstanding comedians that we have lined up for the PAC stage in the coming months including Shappi Khorsandi, Tom Rosenthal, and Andy Parsons. Our live comedy programme always sells out, so I would recommend getting your tickets quickly or risk missing out.”

Arthur is simply one of the UK’s 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.

Arthur Smith is live at Poclington Arts Centre on Friday 31 January, 8pm
Tickets £16 available at or via the Box Office on 01759 301547
