    Additional Information

    PERSONAL REVIEWS

    "Sydney K. Smith deserves recognition for a sustained comedic performance; he was unrecognisable!" - As You Like It, North West End UK

    "Sydney K Smith indulges in plenty of scene-stealing as a Huggy Bearish Touchstone." - As You Like It, Broadway World

    "A hilarious turn from Sydney Smith as John, who’s such a bad actor his lines are fed to him via headset — well, no good was ever going to come of that." - Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Radio Times.

    "Sydney Smith has one of the most important attributes of any actor in that he draws the eye whenever he is on stage. He was also a superb Monsieur Merlot." - The Butterfly Lion, InSuffolk.

    "I must tell you how enjoyable Sydney Smith was as The Princes of Morocco and Aragon were: I had to check my programme to make sure they weren't two separate actors!" - The Merchant of Venice, Derby Telegraph.

    SHOW REVIEWS

    "I'll be laughing into next week." ***** - Magic Goes Wrong, The Sun

    "Exquisitely choreographed mayhem." **** - The Play That Goes Wrong, The Independent

    "A dizzying, dazzling display of meta-theatrical brilliance." ***** - Peter Pan Goes Wrong, The Stage

    "This is a gripping and ultimately touching couple of hours, made all the more compelling by Daniel Buckroyd’s staging."

    **** - The Butterfly Lion, The Guardian.

    "'Sweetpeter' is the kind of play that can change a person's perspective indefinitely: it's a work that sets out to enlighten and it succeeds admirably." - Sweetpeter, TimeOut.

    "A Stand out show on an overcrowded Fringe...It's gripping." **** - Stand By Your Van, London Evening Standard.

    About me

    MINI BIO:

    I trained at Drama Studio London.

    I love playing and creating interesting characters.

    My aim for the future is to continue to build, develop and learn as an artist.

    I am currently playing Mickey the the Olivier Nominated "Magic Goes Wrong" at the Vaudeville Theatre. Most recently, I have worked on the BBC commissioned The Goes Wrong TV Show which was shown earlier this the year. I had a great time playing Touchstone in Shakespeare In The Squares production of "As You Like It".

    Over the last few years I have performed in the Olivier award Winning "Play That Goes Wrong" and the Olivier Nominated "Peter Pan Goes Wrong" both of which were in London's West End. I also, filmed a BBC documentary and shot a couple of commercials.

    My past TV roles include Dean Smilie in the episode 'Say The Word' in the TV series 'Doctors' and as the kidnapper Hal Richards in 'The Bill'.

    Thank you for reading,

    I look forward to working with you!
