Times have moved on, but not for Teddy Taylor, once one of the nation's top comedians. Teddy is plotting his way back to the top during a 1990's summer engagement in Great Yarmouth through a haze of booze, women and creditors. Facing declining audiences, The Teddy Taylor Show, with its dancers, beat-the clock and wet tee-shirt contests, and now eyebrow-raising jokes, is taking him ever further from where he sees as his rightful place. As the pressure builds and those around him, including Sylvia, his fourth (or is it fifth?) wife, try to keep him on the rails, Teddy spins further and further away from reality. And just who, Teddy wants to know, is the young and heavily pregnant woman stalking him from the audience? 'The Count of Comedy' is a brilliant evocation of the British seaside milieu through the eyes of Teddy Taylor as he wanders through his, and the nation's, past and present.
