Steve Delaney first created the character that would go on to become Count Arthur Strong whilst studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama in the 1980’s.
In the 90’s he resurrected the character for an outing on the comedy circuit at the King’s Head, Crouch End and on the following day retired from acting to focus his career on Arthur.
Arthur’s first outing at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1997 saw Delaney win a commendation from the Perrier Panel and the character quickly attracted a cult following. In 2002 Count Arthur Strong returned to Edinburgh with Komedia Entertainment and then
entered an intensive period of production, with five Edinburgh Fringe runs and eleven national tours.
Over the years Count Arthur Strong has acquired a dedicated fan-base of fellow performers with Ross Noble, Johnny Vegas and Steve Coogan being vocal supporters in the early days. The likes of Jennifer Saunders, Martin Clunes and Paul Merton quickly
followed suit with Paul McCartney and Billy Connolly recently adding their weight to the list of celebrity fans.
