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.
