You there – what do you mean you’ve not heard of Count Arthur Strong, one of the most illustrious of entertainers the country has ever had the displeasure of seeing. Wait, no, that’s not right. Oh, forget it.
The point is he’s back and he’s presenting ‘The Sound Of Mucus’ at Tyne Theatre & Opera House this week. What do you mean that isn’t right either? Oh, it must be these glasses, can’t see the wood for the toffee. The showbiz legend will be delighting the crowd with his renditions of songs from classic musicals, uniquely recreating their most powerful and poignant moments for your enjoyment. What else has he got in store? Something. Who knows? It’s top secret. You’ll need a crystal ball to see what surprises he has in store. Actually, that reminds me of a Count Arthur Strong act…
Recently Count Arthur was seen acting alongside that whippersnapper Rory Kinnear in his own televisual show, bringing his antics to the masses. It seems to have worked, as he’s now hailed as one of the funniest acts on the circuit, presenting a night of variety that no will ever forget.
Well I mean you definitely won’t forget it because this performance is being filmed for the live DVD performance! So don’t miss this amazing event! It’ll leave you, erm, what’s that word? Speechless? No, I can find the words… Feeling most excellent! Yes, that’s it!
