Barry Humphries

Four years ago Barry Humphries came to London for his farewell tour, giving audiences one final chance to see him live on stage, but happily he's changed his mind -- he's too good to retire!

The legendary Aussie comic is best-known as Dame Edna Everage, but tonight he'll be a masterfully seasoned MC, alongside the cabaret diva Meow Meow.

The show is a risque tribute to the jazz-infused music of the Weimar Republic -- cabaret's remarkable golden age. Humphries will be re-awakening the spirit of 1920s and 1930s Berlin and re-acquainting us with the composers of the time.

Humphries has a genuine passion for this period, and his witty anecdotes and irreverent asides will provide some laughs in-between the treasure trove of songs.

Barry Humphries’s previous shows in London were at Victoria & Albert Museum and London Palladium.
