We had a great evening full of laughter when we went to see Count Arthur Strong in his show 'The Sound of Mucus' on Thursday night. He is the creation of Steve Delaney and has had eight radio series and two BBC TV series (so far). Count Arthur is a frustrating, irritating but strangely endearing man, full of righteous indignation and a false sense of his own talents. He is at his best with his malapropisms. He treated us to a discussion on the best Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch gave many opportunities for word play - 'Cucumber Cabbage Patch' was one and my favourite was 'Bedford Van Camber Sands'). In the second half, he discussed the Sound of Music and his rendition of 'Sixteen going on Seventeen' had to be seen to be believed!
Just in case you haven't made his acquaintance yet, here he is dealing (in his own inimitable way) with a cold caller selling insurance. Enjoy!
I have been listening to the radio shows series one and two yesterday and today while I have been making jewellery and sewing - a great way to spend the weekend!
