Me, Mrs WTM and the twins. It was their birthday treat out, and I dont think they have laughed so hard in a long time. They love him from radio 2, but never knew what he looked like, but the strangeness aside, it was an excellent evening.

They didnt laugh much in the second half as I think they were all laughed out during the first! They just sort of slumped in their seats and made a sort of strangling, gasping sound.

Anyhow, thought I would share it. If he's coming near you, strongly recommended. Especially if you are a fellow grumpy old git!

goes to the Manchester library theatre homepage, which majors on a Tom Stoppard play. I'm sure you didn't mean him.

Never heard of him, but I will keep an eye open in future. because I am one of those grumpy old gits. I need a good laugh now and again to cheer my wife up. My kids think I am the original "One Foot In The Grave" fella, (forgotten his name naturally). Thanks for the link.. ..Bingalau..

P.S. Just remembered "Victor Meldrew" ..Bingalau..

I too was puzzled by your first link.

"Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" would not have had me rolling in the aisles.

Ken Dodd is doing his annual pilgrimage to my hometown very shortly. As usual, most of the tickets have already been sold. Now there's an entertainer who doesn't clock watch, and set his stage performances to a fixed schedule.

One thing that I have noticed, is the uncanny resemblance of Arthur Smith to that of the chap in the BBC Dragons Den programme.

Apologies to WTM for mentioning this.

I presume you mean that Rosencratz & Guildenstern Are Dead is a funny play in the same sense that Hamlet is! That is, it has a joke in it so it must be.

He was good in the "Backwards" episode of Red Dwarf, and its still funny today, well I think so.

I have listened to Arthur Smith many times on Saturday lunchtime, Radio 2. Always very funny.
