Publisher's Summary

Count Arthur Strong reads 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 six 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.

Through it all I have always lived and now you can live, re-live it too with me on your own, through my voice....well you know what I mean...you want to make something of it?


Any additional comments?

Star of Stage, BBC Radio and with a hit BBC T.V Series in his portfolio Count Arthur Strong is in my humble opinion the most refreshing and witty personalty to claim his niche in the British comedy scene. He is not in anyway a 'fly by night' he has trod the boards and honed his craft over many years. In the finest tradition of northern comics he effortlessly combines the captivating story telling ability of Al Read with the delightful wordplay of Les Dawson and throughout serves up a Dickensian banquet of Malapropisms.

Brilliant

So funny that, as soon as I finished listening the first time, I went back and listened for a second. I love the way he rants and his twisted logic. Genius.
