Comedian, writer, broadcaster and all-round British institution Arthur Smith hosts an evening of laughter and off the wall humour at Exeter Library on Thursday 28th February.

Visitors can expect an evening of sublime playfulness, crammed with jokes, anecdotes, short stories, poems, songs (at least 1 from Leonard Cohen) and readings from his recently published memoir ‘My Name Is Daphne Fairfax’ which has won praise from literary critics. He will also tell the story, as well as a portrait of his late father PC Syd Smith, survivor of Colditz Prisoner of War camp and London copper.

Arthur is simply one of the funniest and most original comic performers and is guaranteed to bring a night of hilarity, mirth and scandal…with a touch of rudeness thrown in for good measure.

Doors open 7pm, show 7.30-9.30pm. Tickets are £10 each and available to purchase from the library in person or via Eventbrite plus a booking fee.
