The legendary Count Arthur Strong is finally saying goodbye

Posted on: 28 May 2024

The legendary Count Arthur Strong is embarking on Part One of his much-anticipated farewell tour, this June at the Redgrave. With a blend of humour and heartfelt goodbyes, this promises to be an unforgettable experience for fans old and new.

After consulting with esteemed Harley Street specialists, the renowned St Anne’s Jombulance Brigade, and the ever-knowledgeable Professor Twitty (the bald one who worked on COVID), Count Arthur has devised a unique farewell strategy. Rather than a single grand finale, he plans to phase out his performances gradually. This thoughtful approach is to prevent the inevitable ‘Cold Turkey’ withdrawals his audiences might suffer in theatres nationwide.

Speaking of cold turkey, Count Arthur himself admits to enjoying a slice or two. However, he humorously reminds us that bringing cold turkey into theatre auditoriums is generally prohibited. While the North East may tolerate it, elsewhere, it’s a no-go due to the unsavory combination of trampled turkey and lingering odors. Theatre management kindly requests your cooperation in keeping the venues turkey-free.

Now, fans have the chance to join Count Arthur for what promises to be a rollicking and nostalgic evening in "And It’s Goodnight From Him!" Part one of this farewell tour is set to kick off in style, capturing the essence of Count Arthur’s unique blend of comedy and charm.

Count Arthur will visit Bristol to start saying his goodbyes this June, on Friday 7 and Saturday 8, at Bristol’s Redgrave Theatre. Whether you’ve been following his career for years or are new to his eccentric world, this show is bound to be a memorable start to his farewell journey.

So, mark your calendars and prepare for a night of laughter, reminiscence, and a touch of theatrical magic. As Count Arthur Strong takes the stage for the first part of his farewell tour, audiences can expect an evening filled with the humor and heart that only he can deliver.
