Count Arthur Strong Is Alive And Unplugged At Gatehouse

The hilarious comedian and star of his very own TV sitcom, Count Arthur Strong, is set to perform at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre next month in his brand new show, ‘Alive and Unplugged’.
Alone, solo and by himself, with no one with him.

Count Arthur Strong returns! This time ‘Alive and Unplugged’ (whatever that means?). In his first solo show for some years, the noble Count takes us back to what he does best… Not that he wasn’t doing his best before… because he was. He only knows how to do his best… So in this wonderful new show he’s still doing the best… he can… No, that’s not working Doris…. Look you do it. Have a look at someone else’s poster and rewrite what they’ve put on that. Not John Bishop’s, though! Obviously discharge your cleaning obligations first. And don’t forget the tide mark on the bath this time! Oh and I’ve got a doctors appointment about my… you know what… so I’ll leave your money under the clock on the mantlepiece.

The show business colossasus (check that), takes us back on a journey through his early career. Using the latest technology and all that (I presume we’ve got a projector?) he will be delving into his own personal box of video cassettes and talking us (you) through the highlights of his glittering tv career, and many of his trademark stories we’ve come to love him for.

If you only buy one ticket for something this year make sure it’s this and bring someone with you. You won’t be disappointed by him (me).

“A relentless blast of comic surprises” The Times

“Laugh-out-loud absurdity, subtly slapstick in both word and deed, from this perfectly-realised fool” Chortle

“There are more sublimely ridiculous moments in this latest show by Steve Delaney’s dilapidated old variety veteran than in any other comedy show I’ve seen this year” The Times
