On Thursday 30th March there will be a chance to join comedian, writer, broadcaster and all-round British institution Arthur Smith when he takes to the stage at OPEN in Norwich as part of his At Your Service tour.

The evening which kicks off at 7.30pm promises to bring laughter and off the wall humour with Arthur Smith who is one of the ‘alternative comedians’ who shook up the world of light entertainment in the nineteen eighties and nineties. 

Expect an evening of sublime playfulness, 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.

A BBC regular, 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’, ‘Balham Bash’, and host of Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club, and Radio 2’s ‘Smith Lectures’. Arthur is a ‘Spirit of The Fringe’ award-winning Edinburgh Festival stalwart and Olivier nominated playwright for ‘An Evening With Gary Lineker’.

Arthur is simply one of our 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.

Tickets are  £14 adv  or £11 for concessions  (NUS card holders + over 65s) and are available from https://arthursmith.eventbrite.co.uk or by calling OPEN’s Box Office on 01603 763111.
