Count Arthur Strong: Is There Anybody Out There?

About Count Arthur Strong: Is There Anybody Out There?

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.

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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Count Arthur Strong: Is There Anybody Out There? are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
