Count Arthur Strong tells the story of his extraordinary journey from his humble early years as the only son of 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. ABOUT THIS BOOK: Technical information: It was written on a typewriter, on paper and then posted to Faber and Faber and Faber. Then they turned it into a book. At a factory? The book is literally a compilation of selected letters from the alphabet formed into words, sentences, paragraphs and then chapters. And they still haven't paid me for the postage. I do hope you enjoy reading it. And I look forward to one day reading it back myself, time permitting. Thank you.

About the Author:

Count Arthur Strong - star of BBC Radio 4's Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show! - is an elderly pompous show-business legend . though really just an out-of-work deluded thespian originally from Doncaster. In Through It All I've Always Laughed he will tell the story of his extraordinary life in his own inimitable, tourettic, malaproping style. Count Arthur Strong is currently airing as a six-part BBC2 series co-written by Steve Delaney and Graham Linehan, BAFTA award-winning writer of Father Ted and The IT Crowd in the UK. A second series of the show has already been commissioned. From Count Arthur Strong: 'If I didn't know I'd written this book and I picked it up in a bookshop, I would be fascinated and enthralled to find out what happened next to me. I would also be highly delighted to pay twice the price of it.'
