Count Arthur Strong tells the story of his extraordinary journey from his humble early years as the only son of a contortionist in wartime Doncaster to the dizzy heights and excesses of fame as one of the shining lights of popular entertainment.
Count Arthur Strong is a show business legend, after-dinner speaker and a leading authority on Ancient Egypt, having been stationed there during his nation service. He has countless friends in the showbiz world. People like Barry Cryer, the white haired one with glasses off 'I'm Sorry I Haven't Got A Clue' and 'Jokers Wild'. This is his first volume, of what he believes may be a 6 volume collection, of his memoirs. He has a few select dates still available for anything (except window cleaning) and is represented, (if you can call it that) by Richard Daws at Komedia Entertainment. (Or if you want to go directly through me and pay cash, I can do that as well.) (In fact I prefer that.) Thank you.
“I haven't read a funnier book all year ... If you like comedy based on misunderstandings, malapropisms, pomposity being pricked, impotent rants against stupid bureaucracy and just cleverly written, perfectly executed lines, then the Count is for you.” IRISH TIMES
“Converts ... will relish the revelations about what made Strong the man, the legend, the sole proprietor of the Doncaster Academy of Performance he is ... rarely has genius appeared so human.” SPECTATOR
