Sings Leonard Cohen - The Extended Mix - T769657670

Arthur Smith sings Leonard Cohen volume 2 was a huge hit at the Edinburgh Fringe and then at venues around Britain and Ireland. It returns now to the Soho Theatre - lengthened, deepened, with extra laughs and the addition of 4 more Cohen songs (including 'the most miserable song ever written'). The show reflects on despair, decline and dementia yet succeeds in being hilarious, joyous and life-affirming. Smith, playwright, grumpy old man, 'Radio 4's bit of rough' and stand-up comic, is enhanced by the fabulous Smithereens, a trio of unbeatably melodious and glamourous singer/musicians to produce an evening you will never forget.

Salty Seadog - T676378010

Alternative stand-up comedian and writer Arthur Smith and Radio 4 regular (Loose Ends) went to the John Roan School in Greenwich back in the days when very few caf?s had broadband. As always, he's delighted to return to his old stomping ground, although his stomping is more measured these days. He's especially keen to return to Cutty Sark, which looms large in his memory and from which he was ejected in 1973. Expect an eclectic performance, including cracking stand-up, a Leonard Cohen song or two, glittering words, loud laughs and the truth about that strange afternoon. The show is followed by a Q&A session.

Burning Issues: F*ck - A Documentary - T01789745210

The film that dare not speak its name. This challenging and provocative documentary takes a look on all sides of the infamous F-word. It's taboo, obscene and controversial, yet somehow seems to permeate every single aspect of our culture - from Hollywood... to the schoolyard... to the Senate floor in Washington D.C. It's the word at the very centre of the debate on Freedom of Speech - and everyone seems to have an opinion. The documentary examines how the word is impacting our world today through interviews, film and television clips, music, and original animation by Oscar nominee Bill Plymptom. Q&A with broadcaster, commentator and grumpy old man Arthur Smith.Director Steve Anderson.
