Count Arthur Strong will be recording two more episodes of his radio sitcom very soon.
Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show! first aired on BBC Radio 4 in 2005 and ran for seven series until 2012 when the former variety star transferred to BBC TV in his eponymous sitcom which was nominated for a BAFTA and was voted 4th best sitcom of the 21st Century in the Radio Times. In 2019 the show was voted 3rd Most Missed TV Show Of The 21st Century in the Radio Times poll (and many thanks to all of you who voted).
In recent years Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show has continued with seasonal specials, many of which have been broadcast on Christmas Day. Having won the Sony Award for Best Radio comedy in 2009, the series was twice voted the Best Radio Sitcom by The British Comedy Guide and named one of the 20 funniest radio comedies of all time in The Telegraph.
This year we are recording two episodes of Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show!, one of which will be a BBC Radio 4 Christmas Special for this year. We will be recording these on Monday 28th October 2019 at The Dancehouse in Manchester. It’s going to be a great night with all the radio show regulars. We will start at 7:15PM.
This recording is happening the day after the “Is There Anybody Out There” live show at the Lowry in Salford, a mere stone’s throw away. Why not make a long weekend of it and come and see both shows?
