Description

Presented by comedian and financial writer Dominic Frisby, this one-hour feature documentary also stars Jimmy Carr, Al Murray, Shazia Mirza, Henning Wehn and Arthur Smith. An original film borne of a live show first performed at Smith’s former home, Panmure House, Father of the Fringe explores the ways in which Smith’s theories on economics are brought to life each year at the world’s biggest arts festival. 'So entertaining I would sign up for a full course of lectures should such a thing exist' (National). 'Funny, absorbing and full of historical insights' (Spectator).
