Product Description

Count Arthur Strong is a show business legend, raconteur and lecturer extraordinaire returning for yet another fun packed series of his hilarious escapades. We again follow the one time variety star as he uncompromisingly fulfils his list of daily engagements, creating more un¬due stress and strain from the minutiae of everyday life. Come along with Arthur as he gets his ancient Hillman Minx back on the road, with or without Terry Wogan as a passenger, and is invited to Spain to run his old friend's Cabaret Bar. What could possibly go wrong! Arthur is again supported by regular sidekicks Wilf Taylor Master Butcher, Gerry Café Owner, Sally long suffering friend and is joined in Spain by his protégé Malcolm De Tinsel. Count Arthur Strong s Radio Show! was recorded in front of a live audience at Komedia Brighton and the Dancehouse Manchester in 2011/2012. This is the 7th series to have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4

I was surprised and saddened to read Count Arthur's creator Steve Delaney declare that this seventh series of his Radio 4 show will be the last due to the Count's transfer to television. It seems a pity as there are far more belly laughs in this radio version than the first series of the television incarnation. But every show needs a gestation period and I daresay the screen version will catch up. On radio Count Arthur is far more of an egotist and sponger which gives him the comic edge, as all the great comic creations are monsters in their own way. Series 7 sees the Count trying to tax his long abandoned Hillman Minx, in the process encountering Terry Wogan, in a brilliant start to the series. After touring the a local home up for sale in the guise of a potential buyer he finally gets a call from his old pal in Spain who is hospitalised and wants Arthur to run it for him until he is back on his feet. This storyline covers three episodes from Arthur boarding a plane (is it going to Spain? Wait and see...) to his arrival and failure to grasp even basic Spanish. Enticing his prodigee Malcolm de Tinsel over to help (and Malcolm's impression of a certain Hollywood A lister is worth the price of the CD alone) you can be sure that Arthur leaves the Wagon Wheel pub in a worse state than he found it. The series ends with Arthur's efforts to join the local Round Table. Some people have said that Count Arthur is marmite, you either love him or loathe him. For me he has produced the funniest radio comedy series that I have ever heard, even better than the mighty Round The Horne, and this CD set is yet again packed with comic gold. Consistently Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show has provided more laughs per minute than virtually any other radio comedy.Read more ›

He plays with the english language so much he is a genius with the way he could (& has) argued with him self in an empty room. I became depressed when after 37 years of marriage my wife left me i became severely depressed to the point where i attempted the ultimate. I failed 6years or so went by and was helped by good friends. I came across count arthur app2-3 years ago and i actually started to belly laugh i have downloaded successfully 6 series i have listened to him many many times the amount you miss on the first few recordings is amazing i am over my troubles now and seriously recommend the count.

At last its available.Got my cd on Monday,have played it three times,keep finding bits I missed because of laughing on previous
playings.If your a fan of Arthur,then you will know what to expect.If you only know him from the TV show,give it a go.
Arthur is a one off,you will never find another like him.If the live show comes your way,treat yourself to a night to remember.

Still good fun but wisely and gently coming to the end
of its run. I have all the series and am ' getting into '
this one.There's always a lot you don't hear until after
a good number of playings. I'm still finding that from
the earlier ones. If you're a fan, do add this last one
to your collection. It's well worth it.

We've been great fans of Count Arthur since the very first Series and this is the latest addition to the Collection. Enjoyed it immensely and would recommend the Radio Series ahead of the TV show to anyone.

Steve Delaney is one phenomenally talented comedy actor. Radio 4 is already known for the high quality of its comedy output, but this material is their “Crème de la Crème”. Count Arthur Strong (Delaney) is the middle-aged, fumbling, penny-pinching master of the malapropism. The convincing Yorkshire accent and skilfully affected speech impediment are superb – as is Delaney’s small pool of supporting actors. This particular style of humour is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I find it side-splittingly funny.

There are 6 episodes in a series, each episode being 28 minutes long as the crow flies. It’s all recorded before a live audience. Each malapropism is hilarious enough in its own right, and there are literally scores in each episode. But almost as funny again is the Count’s desperate flustering to the recall the CORRECT word each time. The delivery and timing of the gags are what make this a true masterpiece of radio comedy. So if you’re a fan of malapropisms and verbal screw-ups in general, order your copy without further adieu!

COMMENTS SPECIFIC TO SERIES SEVEN:
Although he mixes in the upper escallops of society, Arthur avoids the slimelight, preferring to remain anomalous. The Count takes his holidays at the Costa del Coffee and would have made a good legal avocado by always invoking habeas corpulent. His favourite songs are Idlemice from the Sound of Mucus, plus Eddie Presley’s Blue Suede Foot and Heartburn Hotel. Arthur watches Harry Hill’s You’ve Been Farmed and also knows the lyrics to nursery slime Simpleton Simon. He’d like to join the Free Morons at his local Moronic Lodge and thinks that the Space Shuffle is launched from Cape Carnivore. Honestly, some folks live in Cloud Cuckoo–Clock!

didn't realise that series seven was to be the last to be made and broadcast on radio now it's transferred to tv, a real shame as the tv version although quite watchable, it didn't work for me...
