The return of our regular friday night comedy club featuring three top performers from the national circuit and our Barnstormers compere.
Often described as the compère beyond compare, Arthur worked as a road sweeper, dustman, market researcher, teacher and advertised chicken burgers in supermarkets dressed as a fox before becoming a fully-fledged playwright, panellist, performer and stalwart of the Edinburgh Festival,
A career in comedy was the only one that could follow a build up like that. He was one of many stand-up performers on the alternative comedy scene in the Eighties.
Twenty years on he still performs in much the same manner, perhaps ironically, he now describes himself as a “semi-professional” comedian.
To BBC radio and TV audiences, his career has been split between appearing on top quiz shows and fronting the funny section in Loose Ends. On TV, he’s been a regular Grumpy Old Man and Countdown wordsmith.
His plays include the award-winning An Evening with Gary Lineker, My Summer with Des and The Bed Show. He has presented Radio 4’s Excess Baggage and Radio 2’s The Smith Lectures and is a regular guest on Loose Ends. He describes himself as Radio 4’s “bit of rough”.
