Barry Humphries makes his way to the London Palladium as part of his farewell tour and this will see him entertain audiences as Dame Edna and as other well known and beloved characters all in one night. Over the years the Australian comic has had a huge influence on fans on both sides of the world and so the tour marks the end of an era; one that will have audiences across the country clamouring to pick up theatre tickets before Eat, Pray, Laugh! closes its doors for the final time.
Eat, Pray, Laugh! is split into two acts. In the first half we will be entertained by two of his creations – Sandy Stone and Les Patterson – the former the grandfatherly man from the suburbs and the latter an obese and uncouth, middle aged man. Then the second half will feature the most famous creation of Humphries – Dame Edna Everage, the refined Melbourne lady who Humphries has been portraying since her first appearance in the second half of the 1950s in Victoria, Australia. Accompanying his most famous creation there will be dancing and memorable sets to give Everage fans a spectacle to remember.
Barry Humphries is an enormously famous Australian entertainer who has been performing all over the world since he began his career in the mid-1950s. In addition to Stone, Patterson and Everage he has also created characters like Barry McKenzie and appeared in an array of plays. As a solo artist he has presented many shows, with A Night With Dame Edna in 1979 winning in the category of Best Comedy Performance at the Laurence Olivier Awards. He has appeared in the West End on prior occasions and this included Edna, The Spectacle at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 1998.
The London Palladium is currently the home to A Chorus Line, the Broadway musical that finishes at the end of August. Barry Humphries then plays at the venue from November with the stage set for Harry Hill’s I Can’t Sing – The X Factor Musical in 2014.
Barry Humphries' Farewell Tour - Eat, Pray, Laugh! is at the London Palladium from Friday 15th November 2013 (with previews from Wednesday 13th November 2013).
