Gets better every year

I remember mark Steel when he started in stand up. He was a slow-burner but one night compere Arthur smith said after Mark's set, 'mark steel ladies and gentlemen taking the roof off!' He stormed the gig and I became a fan. His radio shows are remarkably different to his stand up and again it took a while for me to like it. I'm now quite an annoying fan of his series as I just don't get how anyone can not like it! Truly brilliant and original work. On a final note; whatever happened to the compere Arthur Smith?
