London's Best Independent Comedy Club

Comedians As Seen On...

Arthur Smith

​Comedian, Presenter, Actor, Writer (and Night Mayor of Balham – self appointed), Arthur is one of the much admired originals of the great British alternative comedy scene.

Arthur has a consistently brilliant talent and ability to provide light entertainment whilst also still finding new and interesting ways to make people laugh.
It is no surprise, therefore, that he remains a sought after artist by Comedy Clubs, Theatres, Festivals and Private Events and is regularly seen and heard on Television and Radio.

Smith stands out among his generation for a willingness to keep pushing himself and experimenting with the new forms of comedic expression… Today’s hottest young comics still see him as an inspiration.” – Guardian
