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 – 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.

“This bittersweet blend of stand-up and song made me laugh (a lot) and cry (a bit)… a triumph.” **** Times

“The Smithereens, Smith’s sensational troupe of backing singers, [are] … Ethereal, playful and beguiling.” **** Fest

“Smith’s reflections on dementia, enthusiasm, comedy and death are carefully bundled with Cohen’s wry melancholia.” – Sunday Times

“Thoroughly entertaining.” **** Three Weeks

“Smith ruminates on love, family, ageing, death and the poetic ability of Spock from Star Trek…. magical.” – Big Issue

“A delight of a show.” **** List

“Get tickets fast.” **** Broadwaybaby.com

“Arthur Smith’s your man … a comic sage.” ***** Mail On Sunday

“A comical and musical triumph.” **** Independent

**** Financial Times
