Stand up for Labour - West Somerset
Stand up for Labour holds its first event for West Somerset Labour Party in a show headlined by comedy great Arthur Smith.
Taking place at the Hobby Horse (Esplanade, Minehead TA24 5QP), the night features:
Plymouth-based comedian, Richard James, who has been performing comedy since 2012. He has performed across the UK alongside the great and the good, from festivals to corporate functions, to theatres and little pubs.
Eliza Fraser, a regular face and immediately recognisable voice on the Bristol comedy scene, a sharp and hilarious writer and high-energy performer.
Arthur Smith is one of comedy’s elder statesmen: an Edinburgh Fringe stalwart and performer since the early days of the alternative scene.
His distinctive voice is regularly heard on Radio 4 and he has made regular appearances on TV in such shows as ‘QI’, ‘Have I Got News for You’, ‘The One Show’, ‘Countdown’, ‘Loose Women’, ‘Room 101, ‘Grumpy Old Men’. His acting credits include ‘Red Dwarf’, ‘Filthy Rich and Catflap’ and ‘Are you Being Served?’. He also co-wrote the play ‘An Evening with Gary Lineker’.
Arthur appeared at Stand up for Labour’s first show in 2012 and has since performed all over the country in support of the Labour Party.
The show is hosted by Crispin Flintoff, who set up Stand up for Labour in 2012 as he believed that political events were not inspiring or entertaining enough. He has now organised over 200 shows in England, Scotland and Wales and, in doing so, has inspired more people to get involved in politics and has raised money for the Labour Party as well.
The night also includes liquid prizes and a raffle.
Tickets cost £10 if bought before 1 May/£12 in advance/£15 on the door.
