Count Arthur Strong: Is There Anybody Out There?


  • Date: Fri 25 Oct 2019
  • Time: 8pm
  • Pricing: £23.15

As well as being the all-round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, Count Arthur Strong is also a lifelong fan of astronomy, since having been given a microscope, or whatever it is they use, for Christmas when he was a small precocious baby. 

In fact, it’s said the first word he spoke was ‘Uranus’.

In his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently find in the world (possibly?) as he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from, such as:

  • Are we alone in the universe?
  • Is there life on Mars bars?
  • 2lbs of potatoes.
  • A packet of ginger nuts.
  • Don’t lose this shopping list.

‘Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d definitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and definitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and fiddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!’Count Arthur Strong
