• “More sublimely ridiculous moments in this latest show than in any other comedy show I’ve seen this year” Dominic Maxwell, The Times

• Filmed during his marathon 2017 tour, Showbiz legend Count Arthur Strong plays tribute to one of the best musicals he can remember. Almost recreating the salient and poignant moments for your enjoyment. Count Arthur is assisted by Terry Kilkelly playing Malcolm and Renee with Dave Plimmer as Alan Leslie.

• Steve Delaney created Count Arthur Strong whilst studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama in the 1980s. During his career as an actor he recreated the character for an outing at the Edinburgh Fringe in the mid 90s. The character quickly became an Edinburgh Festival Fringe institution with his famed lecture talks gaining both a cult following and huge critical acclaim.

• The character moved onto BBC Radio 4 for Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show!, winning the Sony Award for Best Radio Comedy in 2009. After seven radio series Count Arthur made his televisual debut, initially on BBC2 (winning two BAFTA nominations along the way) before moving to BBC1. The third series was aired at a primetime slot earlier this year. There are two Christmas specials currently being made for BBC Radio 4 for transmission later this year.

• “Count Arthur Strong can safely be mentioned in the same breath as Tommy Cooper” Chortle (March 2017) “Immaculately observed variety stalwart” Mark Wareham, The Mail On Sunday (April 2017) “Losing the plot has never been so much fun” Mark Wareham, The Mail On Sunday (April 2017) ”Had an effect on me as vitalising as that of his “medicinal Lucozade”: I felt giddy with delight” Brian Logan, The Guardian (May 2017)

• Previously unreleased performance of a full length live show from Count Arthur’s largest tour to date.

• Release is planned to coincide with announcement of two Christmas specials on BBC Radio4 and a brand new 2018 tour. Count Arthur is also due to appear in pantomime over the Christmas holidays in London.
