‎**Arthur's "I'm a Funny Launderer" lapel button is in evidence throughout this BBC video of his national radio show**
ARTHUR SMITH has become one of comedy's elder statesmen: an Edinburgh Fringe stalwart and a club compere since the early days of the alternative scene, he still uses many of the same gags today. He's also become a regular on Radios 2 and 4, one of TV's Grumpy Old Men, and a writer whose best-known work is the World Cup play An Evening With Gary Lineker and his own bestselling 2009 autobiography "My Name Is Daphne Fairfax". Arthur was one of the very first UK comics to headline a show in Switzerland in 2006 and has since reluctantly been burdened with the very dishonourable title of Official Ambassador for International Funny Laundering with which he his entirely underwhelmed. This will be his fourth visit to perform in Switzerland.
THE PROVOCATEERS ~ Steve Bowditch and Paul The Poet ~ host a revolutionary, back-to-basics Open Mic night in South East London's comedy heartland of Greenwich called "The Friday Mic" which, spookily enough, is on a Friday night. Steve was one of the original comics and protagonists at the the birth of 'alternative' comedy in the early 1980's, an original member of comedy legend Malcolm Hardee's infamous "Greatest Show On Legs" and their world famous Balloon Dance and is a regular support to Harry Hill on his tours and Paul the Poet is a member of 'we should get a boat', compere of friday mic @ the star & garter, poet & author of "the daily provocateer". His word-smithery is honed on a daily basis at the Acadmey of The Royal Albert in Deptford. Except on Fridays of course.

Arthur Smith is stand up royalty. If you're kicking your heels tonight or wondering what to do on a warm evening, come down to the Kuppel, have a cool and refreshing drink and buy me one, too, please

Re: Stand Up Comedy in Basel - Arthur Smith + The Provocateers

I went to the show on Tuesday in Geneva. Arthur was fantastic (it pays to sit at the front for the 'view' - all will be revealed for you tonight).

The Provocateers, mmm, well, it's alternative comedy that's for sure. An alternative to not being funny, quite possibly...
