Arthur Smith headlines at the Drayton this Friday
Star of Grumpy Old Men Arthur Smith, headlines the No5 Club at the Drayton on October 4.
In 2005, he turned down a lifetime achievement award from the Perrier Award organisers. “They wanted to tell me I was old and cool, ” he said. “Well, I know that already, and my ego is bloated enough.”
Smith describes himself as the self appointed “Night Mayor of Balham”, where he lives. “I don't do days”.
In 2009 he broadcast a comedy series for BBC Radio 4 from his home called Arthur Smith’s Balham Bash. He is currently the host of ‘Arthur Smith's Comedy Club’ on Radio 4 Extra and is also presenter on Radio 4 programmes Excess Baggage and Loose Ends. He appears on television comedy panel games.
