Steve Delaney – Count Arthur Strong Biography:

Cry with laughter, ache for oxygen and watch in awe’
–   The Independent

‘Count Arthur could become one of the great British comic characters of our time’
– The Scotsman

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. This ranged from 2002’s ‘Forgotten Egypt!’ to 2017’s ‘Sound of Mucus’ national tour.
In 2004 Count Arthur Strong stepped onto national radio. Firstly onto BBC Radio 2 as a regular guest on ‘The Mark Radcliffe Show’, and then onto BBC Radio 4 in his own sitcom, ‘Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show!’ The show, produced by Komedia Entertainment and Smooth Operations, won the Sony Award for Best Radio Comedy in 2009 and became a cornerstone of BBC Radio comedy, with 7 series and half a dozen specials, including a Christmas Day episode in recent years.
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.
In 2008 Delaney started to develop the character for TV with Graham Linehan. In 2012 a sitcom titled ‘Count Arthur Strong’, produced by Retort TV and Komedia Entertainment, was broadcast on BBC2. The series was nominated for several British Comedy and BAFTA awards, including listing for Best Sitcom by both judging panels. The second series of the sitcom was produced in 2014 and transferred to BBC1. A third series of the sitcom is planned to air on BBC1 in 2017.
