Someone a lot wiser than Andy Smith once said: “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people” ... and maybe ‘true love’ is even shorter?
Come and peep into the pleasures and pitfalls of Andy’s transition from emotional thug to contented spouse in this poetic presentation that meanders through the mysteries of human relationship, and administers a healing dose of humour on the journey.Views: 70 | Enquiries: 0
Andy is a performance poet and entertainer, author and former business communicator who has two artificial limbs, a wonderful wife, three fine children, a whippet called Tamba and a tabby called Toby. (He also had two feisty chickens until Basil Brush made their acquaintance).
Andy engages live and digital audiences with his poetry and related commentary; plenty of light-hearted humour ... and a smattering of history. And once a year the bionic bard and his long-suffering spouse make a trip to West Africa to support and encourage victims of trauma.
