Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2001


"Smashing and witty" The Guardian "fresh, original and very funny" Daily Telegraph.

Comedian and writer Linda Smith hits the stage running with her brand new full-length show — an exhilarating night of sparkling entertainment for connoisseurs of comedy.

A British Comedy Award nominee for her stand-up work Linda is widely regarded as one of the sharpest comics working on Radio and Television. She can often be heard on R4’s News Quiz and Just a Minute where her wit and sideways view of life add immeasurably to the programmes. Hebden Bridge is her only stop in Yorkshire on this tour and indeed shortly after appearing here she can be heard in her own six-part BBC Radio 4 comedy series "Linda Smith’s Brief History of Time Wasting". A sell-out at the last seven Edinburgh Fringe Festivals her current tour is breaking all records.

A sure-fire cracker of an evening and not to be missed.

Friday June 22 8.00 Hebden Bridge Picture House
