Steve Delaney – has created one of the funniest Radio & TV Sitcom Characters the UK has seen since David Brent.
Count Arthur Strong dominated my TV in lockdown 2, Nina & I binged the lot…
On todays show I talk to Steve about his favourites on TV & Radio growing up as well as inspirations for the Count including Steve’s own Godfather and neighbour Billy Kay.
We talk about his woodwork prop workshop at Leeds Playhouse and The Grand as well as the writing process for the radio and tv shows, working with Graham Linehan and Graeme Duff, Barry Cryer and Rory Kinnear.
I loved hearing about his grafting on the Royal Mile at the Edinburgh Festival, you can hear the passion Steve has for Arthur and he has worked his heart out to bring Arthur Strong to our stage, screen & radio shows.
He has turned down corporate bookings because of the love of his character and he’s not the only one who loves this Variety Star who is slightly wrong in many ways but those ways are very very funny.
