COUNT ARTHUR STRONG

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Following the smash-hit success of his BBC Radio 4 comedy series (Sony GOLD Award Winner - Best Radio Comedy 2009) and sell out tour, Count Arthur Strong, showbiz legend and raconteur, reminds us just what we’ve been missing since his last television series,‘The Robin Hood Club’, was axed in 1960 something. As Arthur himself says, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just turn the telly on after a hard day at the abattoir...or whatever it is you do... and there I was, smiling back at you, in my own programme again, again.” “Forever the nearly man of show business and an expert mangler of words, Count Arthur is nothing less than wonderful… One of the greatest comic creations of this century, Count Arthur is compulsory viewing." The Mirror “…an absolutely hilarious evening in the presence of comedy nobility” Leicester Mercury
