Showbiz legend and raconteur Count Arthur Strong returns to the stage for his Command Performance Tour, which brings him to Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Thursday, April 26.

So get your Maltesers out, roll your trouser legs up and sit back and enjoy this potentially wonderful show, pausing only to glance up from your program to ask when the interval is.

Steve Delaney created Radio Four stalwart Count Arthur Strong while studying at the Central School of Speech and Drama. During his career as an actor he recreated the character for an outing at the Edinburgh Fringe. The character quickly became an Edinburgh Festival Fringe institution with his famed lecture talks gaining both a cult following and huge critical acclaim.
