Count Arthur Strong - Is There Anyone Out There?

  • >Event Information
  • > Dates and Times

18th October 2019

Harrogate Theatre

As well as being the all round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, 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.
‘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!’

“Undeniably brilliant” - Brian Logan, The Guardian
“Pure genius and pure tribute to the golden age of vaudeville” - Bruce Dessau,
Evening Standard “Can safely be mentioned in the same breath as Tommy Cooper” - Steve Bennett, Chortle

In little over two decades the meticulous comic creation of Count Arthur Strong has gone from an Edinburgh Fringe cult to become a mainstay of the UK comedy scene. With a reputation built over eight Edinburgh runs, eleven national tours and 70 broadcast shows on BBC Radio and TV, Count Arthur Strong’s position in the comedy landscape is now often likened to that once held by the variety greats Tommy Cooper, Ken Dodd and Tony Hancock.
