BBC One’s Count Arthur Strong is to bring his new show to Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre and Opera House.

The eccentric former music hall entertainer will perform his Somebody Up There Likes Me! show on Saturday 7 February 2015.

Fresh from donkey’s years on his award-winning BBC Radio 4 series and the huge success of his BBC One Show, Count Arthur Strong is getting back to doing what he does best.

In Somebody Up There Likes Me! Count Arthur will be doing all sorts of wonderful things for you to sit there staring at, as you quietly suck your Maltesers and don’t get up to go to the toilet, applauding loudly at the appropriate moments. You’ll laugh, cry and the other one.

Count Arthur said: “If you only buy one ticket for something this year buy a ticket for this one twice and bring a friend. I promise you you won’t regret it. And if you do there must be something wrong with you. No refunds.”

Count Arthur Strong: Somebody Up There Likes Me!, Tyne Theatre and Opera House, Newcastle, Saturday 7 February 2015, £17.50. Tickets are available from Tyne Theatre and Opera House box office, on 0844 2491 000 or online.
