One of Red Imp's favourites re-warms up his sell out show"SYD" a critically acclaimed show about his old man.

Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a P.O.W., and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s PC Syd patrolled London’s South Bank and met a gallery of characters, whom he tried his best not to arrest.
