When comedian Max Baker dies, his son Michael reluctantly agrees to write his biography, which brings him into contact with Max's old comedy partner, the swaggering purveyor of malapropisms, Count Arthur Strong.
Michael discovers that Arthur has been advertising various services in a newsagent window and suggests Arthur would reach a wider audience by going online, so he lends him a computer. Predictably, Arthur uses it to send abusive messages in Michael's name.
When an actor falls ill, Count Arthur is offered a small role in a radio play, though he soon confuses and annoys his co-stars. However, when he gets the young leading man drunk minutes before the recording, it looks as if he will end up being the star of the show.
When a riot erupts in the street outside a café, staff and patrons lock themselves in the back room for safety. Arthur, who assumes the ruckus has been caused by the butcher selling two chops for the price of one, decides to entertain everyone.
Arthur's latest job as a dog walker results in Michael getting bitten by one of the dogs. Michael is taken to the doctor by Arthur, who, in his quest for a comfortable seat, is mistaken for a physician, a role he relishes, having once played Doctor Two in a soap opera.
Following Katya's death, Arthur becomes reclusive and convinced that she is not happy, so he summons the café regulars to a séance.
