He may be grumpy, but Arthur will make you laugh
The voice and grouchy demeanour are instantly recognisable from his contributions to the BBC's Grumpy Old Men and appearances on Loose Ends and even Countdown. Arthur Smith, dubbed the Godfather of comedy, will top the bill at the Totnes Comedy Lounge on Saturday, September 7. He's familiar from TV and radio, but it is as a stage performer and writer that Smith's strongest talents make themselves felt. He regularly produces material that's surreal, instantly cultish, and hugely popular. That's why he's one of the country's favourite comedians.
The race is on with a play exploring sporting drive
On your marks, get set, go... and head for the Bike Shed Theatre Exeter and Westcountry-based Tumbling Hat's new show, The 100m Sprint. The play explores the childhood memories of three sporting elites as they prepare for the most important race of the year. They delve into the sparks that set their sporting ambitions in motion, recounting what strives them to succeed, and what pitfalls and humiliations have challenged them along the way.

Popular Falstaff offers you a Merry entertainment
One of Shakespeare's best loved comic characters, Sir John Falstaff, is once again set to seduce audiences around the country in a glorious production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. It is said that when Queen Elizabeth I saw Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part I, she laughed so much at the character of Sir John Falstaff she ordered his continued existence at her court. The result was The Merry Wives of Windsor, a play that provides audiences with generous helpings of wit, broad farce, trickery and true love. Less often performed than some of Shakespeare's comedies, it is in skilled hands with Devon-based Creative Cow.
It can be seen at Tiverton Community Theatre on September 13 and 14, with autumn dates in Dulverton, Exeter and Minehead.
