In his TV show, delusional show business character Count Arthur Strong, a pompous, out-of-work actor from Doncaster attempts to recount his life story with the help of the scholarly son of his former comedy partner
As well as being the all-round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, cult figure Count Arthur Strong is also a lifelong fan of astronomy, since having been given a microscope, or whatever it is they use, for Christmas when he was a small precocious baby.
In fact, it’s said the ﬁrst word he spoke was ‘Uranus’. In this, his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently ﬁnd, in the world, (possibly?) as he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from. Such as:
Are we alone in the universe?
Is there life on Mars bars?
2lbs of potatoes.
Packet of ginger nuts.
Don’t lose this shopping list.
He said: “Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d deﬁnitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and deﬁnitely not asking for a refund.
“Also not rustling sweet wrappers and ﬁddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!”
He is the creation of Steve Delaney.
