2016 Specials - The Scam

As Christmas approaches, and Arthur attempts to get his Christmas scotch from Secret Santa, he bumps into an old friend. Will Arthur be involved in an investment scheme?

Further details

Count Arthur Strong - one-time Variety Star, now sole proprietor and owner of Doncaster's Academy of Performance - is a showbusiness legend, raconteur, and lecturer extraordinaire.

All false starts and nervous fumbling badly covered up by a delicate sheen of bravado and self-assurance, and an expert in everything from the world of entertainment to the origin of the species, everyday life with Arthur is an enlightening, sometimes frustrating, but never dull experience.

Count Arthur Strong is supported in the Christmas special by his Radio Repertory Company (like the RSC only better).
