The Amazing Mr. Smith

The Amazing Mr Smith is absolutely mesmerizing to watch and piss-your-pants funny. He can make music from anything, including contraceptives... The Amazing Mr.Smith has been described as Monty Python's answer to John Williams. His combination of mad inventions and brilliant acoustic guitar playing make him one of the funniest and most original entertainers around. The cardboard tube double bass, the musical shoelaces, the nutcracker played on the tu-tu xylophone, the blue danube on the condom harp and his 3-minute rendition of "Riverdance" have to be seen to be believed.

As well as being on the comedy circuit for at least 10 years, he has made people laugh in every conceivable type of venue in the UK, performed on local and national TV and toured the USA five times(also Holland , Germany, Norway and Jordan). Although his act is very visual, he was recently asked to play some of his bizarre instruments on Ned Sherrin's 'Loose Ends'.
