Count Arthur Strong “The Man Behind the Smile”

Following the smash-hit success of his BBC Radio 4 comedy series (Sony Gold Award Winner - Best Radio Comedy 2009) and recent 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.”

Character comedy at it's absolute finest.

Count Arthur Strong returns with his show, "The Man Behind The Smile", for this extended tour due to popular demand.


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.

Malapropisms, spoonerisms, tall stories and archive footage meticulously stitched together... It is an immaculate performance.

An absolutely hilarious evening in the presence of comedy nobility.
