Count Arthur Strong Tickets
Hit BBC sitcom Count Arthur Strong takes to the stage
Here’s one for all fans of the hit sitcom Count Arthur Strong. It first aired on BBC One in January 2013 in front of a live studio audience, quickly finding its feet on the UK’s most prominent channel and enjoying success with three series until it was cancelled in 2017. The popular comedy saw a rather delusional, has-been showman and out-of-work actor from Doncaster, Count Arthur Strong, who was played by comedian and actor Steve Delaney, telling the story of his life with the help of the long-suffering son of his former comedy partner, Michael Baker. Fans of BBC comedy shows such as Mrs Browns Boys and Still Game will enjoy the stereotypical, true-to-life humour that Count Arthur brings to the show.

Retelling Count Arthur Strong’s story
The comedy show focuses on the rather mundane, with the lead star, pompous and jobless actor Count Arthur, frequenting his local café, which is run by Turkish character Bulent with the help of his sister, Sinem. The other characters are all pensioners who are equally seeking some excitement in their lives. Count Arthur insists on repeating his stories of show business to anyone who will listen, with his rather clumsy approach and verbal tics seemingly not holding him back when he proudly recounts his former glory days as an actor. Starting life as a radio show on BBC Radio 4, aptly named "Count Arthur’s Radio Show", fans of the original show are now able to empathise more with a physical character bumbling around on camera. Steve Delaney, who wrote and starred as Count Arthur himself along with Graham Linehan and Jeremy Dyson, truly taps into the audience with a depiction of the slow pace of life and the rather tragic humour that TV audiences clearly loved.
Live comedy at its best
Following the shows’ roots – the TV show was filmed in front of a live studio audience – the Count Arthur Strong stage show retains the cute-yet-tragic style of comedy that Delaney, Lineham and Dyson so cleverly created. If you’re a fan of live comedy shows such as Citizen Khan you’re bound to enjoy what Count Arthur Strong delivers.
