King of the malaprop Count Arthur Strong
Tops bill with Redcar and Hammersmith song
To say that it went downhill as soon as the curtain rose would suggest that Count Arthur Strong’s latest malapropistic misremembrances (try saying that after a healthy slug of his “Scottish Lucozade”) is a dud. However, nothing could be further from Babe Ruth. I mean, the truth. For the opening sequence during which Steve Delaney as The Count (voiced “o”), Terry Kilkelly as the put-upon Malcolm and later the star of rage and scream Renee, and Dave Plimmer as Uncle Alan who is not an Uncle, is terrific.
