    1 thought on “Through it All I've Always Laughed: Memoirs of Count Arthur Strong”

    1. I have read Bruce Campbell's autobiography. I have read Chuck Norris' autobiography. I have even read David Hasselhoff's autobiography.But until I read Count Arthur Strong's autobiography, I had never read the autobiography of Count Arthur Strong.

    2. If you are aware of Count Arthur Strong then you will know what to expect. I enjoyed reading a chapter here and there between other books to really appreciate it. Absolutely hilarious and genius in many parts had me laughing out loud constantly.

    3. Rather like Count Arthur Strong himself, this has its moments but the jokes start to wear thin when they're repeated as relentlessly as they are here. The CAPS LOCK gags, the false starts, the chapter numbers just aren't as funny the tenth or eleventh time around. Of course this less-than-positive reaction might just be a symptom of repressed trauma caused by the realisation that every family has its own version of Arthur. That monstrous ego, those bizarre character traits, the grandiosity; it's [...]

    4. I really like Count Arthur. I got to know him through the TV series, but have also listened to some of the original episodes from BBC I player. This book had me chuckling quite frequently. Arthur's voice is very clear, if you like the character you'll love the book.

    5. Yes i is amusing but would probably be better as an audio book so the reader can hear the Count's (everso distinctive) voice.

    6. As Meadowlark Lemon of the Harlem Globetrotters once famously said, "De gustibus ain't what dey used to be." This is never more true than in books considered "humor," as this hee-heelarious series of essays by an English writer channeling fictional showman Count Arthur Strong demonstrates.I could only read half of it before becoming seriously depressed and wondering if life is worth it after all. I decided it was when I put this book down.Maybe it's British humor, although I always liked Monty P [...]

    7. An ironic review first - this book was full of spelling errors, poor punctuation and other such grammatical errors - in fact it was littered with them throughout the book. As well as this, there were numerous examples of the author giving us an unwanted insight into his actual writing process, ie times when Caps Lock got stuck and he was calling for more tippex again, as well as lots of examples of him getting his words mixed up all the time. Whoever proof-read this before it was published needs [...]

    8. You might think you know the real Count Arthur Strong through his many performances on stage and the telly but this book, "Through it All I've Always Laughed: Memoirs of Count Arthur Strong" will show that actually, yes, you do know the real Count Arthur Strong.Count Arthur (if I might be so familiar) writes his memoirs not for the money (although sending him an additional fiver or two in appreciation for the numerous life and acting tips he gives as helpful gestures to those less fortunate than [...]

    9. I watched the TV show on the recommendation of a good friend who loves the Count's radio programme and it was one of the funniest and most original comedies I've seen in many a year. So this book was a must for me and didn't disappoint one iota (what is an iota?). I can see from other reviews that some people found the joke continuity wore thin but I firmly believe this book should be read as if Count Arthur is narrating it himself, complete with voice and mannerisms. You don't actually have to [...]

    10. Count Arthur Strong is very much like that famous spread you either love it or you hate it. You either get the humour or it leaves you cold. I'm firmly in the 'I get it' category (my wife thinks I'm mad). Having listened to all Count Arthur's radio shows, I've also seen his live show at the Edinburgh Festival (half the audience were in fits of laughter while the other half sat in silence (like my wife). This book is a strange, but entertaining rambling monologue consistent with his creator's (S [...]

    11. In the British Showbiz Firmament there is one man who stands toe to toe with the greats what are Garrick, Gielgud, Olivier, Mike and Bernie Winters etc. That man is Count Arthur Strong, Showbiz Legend, Doyen of Light Entertainment, After Dinner Speaker, Doncaster Cauliflower Ear Champion 1968 and 1969 (only person ever to successfully defend the title), Raconteur and purveyor of fine Piccalilli. And he was in Juliet Bravo and Dick Green of Dockleaf too. Volumes two and three can't come quick eno [...]

    12. Count Arthur Strong is definitely a pretty unique guy. This book might not appeal to everyone but I like the style of humour. The only reason it didn't get 5* is because it slipped into been slightly repetitious at times. Lots of laugh out loud moments will definitely be reading the next oneamps!

    13. I love Count Arthur Strong, so I suspose I should rate this book more favorably It would be 2.5 stars but I can't justify a 3. The style wears quite thin after the initial hilarity, and I think the only way this would be better appreciated is if the raconteur and after dinner speaker were narrating himself.

    14. The problem with this book is that it is too funny. My wife kept complaining she couldn't sleep as I was laughing too much when reading in bed. Don't read it on a bus unless you can control your laughter - people will think you are crazy. You have been warned.

    15. I enjoyed this character in his recent TV series so thought I would enjoy his "memoirs", but sadly they turned out to be rather tedious and repetitive. I get that it was supposed to be humour, but it didn't really work for me.

    16. My husband bought me this for my birthday as a joke. He loves the TV and radio show whereas I don't always understand what's going on. I did ,however, decide to read it. Quite funny, some chapters are better than others. Written as the character so all spelling and grammar errors are deliberate.

    17. Not only hilarious but quite an experimental book, as we witness Count Arthur authoring his autobiography in real time, editing on-the-hoof, abandoning chapters that prove too much like hard work and experiencing difficulties with a sticky Caps Lock key.Just brilliant.

    18. Been meaning to read this for a long time (the first time it was released in fact) and thankfully it lived up to the wait. Proper Count Arthur without Graham Linehan making it about himself. *awaits full family history posted to Twitter*

    19. Hilarious! I love this creation of Steve Delaney's. Took a couple of episodes on the radio before I realised what was going on! Read it to find out the origins of his 'Counthood'!!

    20. Rambling, inchoate, irate and hilarious. So basically everything you could want from a memoir by Count Arthur.Can we have a second volume, please?
