About the show

The international comedian and entertainer Barry Humphries makes a welcome return to London, with his 'Farewell Tour - Eat Pray Laugh!' at the historic London Palladium, the spiritual home of variety entertainment. Direct from a 5-star sell out season in Australia and New Zealand, this brand new production opens in the West End before beginning a UK tour. This will be the final opportunity to see Humphries' most celebrated creation, Dame Edna Everage on stage in an all-singing, all-dancing stage spectacular.

Humphries' is one of the world's most iconic comic performers, and has won a string of awards in both London and New York. His blend of sharp wit and racy humour has helped him become one of TV's most recognizable stars. In his final farewell to the stage, he returns to thank his loyal fans with an evening that mixes stand up, storytelling and musical performances. Act One features a number of Humphries' other creations, including lovable grandfather Sandy Stone along with the outrageous Les Patterson. Dame Edna describes this as "a bit of foreplay really before I make an orgasmic appearance in Act Two!”

Dame Edna's appearance promises to 'empower' audiences, with frank discussion on topics ranging from gender, climate change, gay marriage and ethnicity. Surrounded by spectacular sets, costumes and some rather stunning dancers, this is set to be one unforgettable evening. The production is directed by Simon Phillips who has had previous West End success on the hilarious 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert' and features designs by Brian Thompson who is most famous for his work on the 2000 Olympic Closing Ceremony in Sydney. Don't be late Possums - book your tickets to this spectacular seasonal event!
