News: Rob Brydon To Interview Barry Humphries At The London Palladium

Comedy legend Barry Humphries is returning to London to be interviewed by Rob Brydon live on stage.

The Dame Edna Everage creator promises to reveal all during Rob Brydon Probes Barry Humphries Live On Stage at the London Palladium on April 28.

The evening will consist of antipodean antihero Humphries being interviewed by Rob Brydon, star of The Trip, Would I Lie To You? and Gavin and Stacey. Barry will be revealing his top 10 comedy moments of all time, which will be shown a huge HD screen.

The legendary comic, now 85-years-old, will also give a no holds barred telling of his 64 years on stage.

From his early days after as a fresh-faced graduate starting out at the Melbourne Theatre Company as Dame Edna, to selling out the Palladium in the 80s, Rob Brydon Probes Barry Humphries Live on Stage will explore the man behind the makeup.

Rob Brydon said: “I’ve admired and been influenced by Barry Humphries for as long as I can remember. I will probe his every nook and cranny, relentlessly.”

Barry Humphries added: “I’m nervous about being probed by Mr Brydon, I consulted his wife. She reassured me by saying that it could be rather entertaining on the odd occasion.” 

Chris Daniels, Director of Rob Brydon Probes Barry Humphries Live on Stage, commented: “The London Palladium could not be a more fitting venue for these two titans of the comedy world to come together and appreciate every inch of one another. Though they have their own, unique styles of comedy, Barry has served as a huge source of inspiration for Rob. To see them both under one roof will be unforgettable.”

This event replaces the evening performance of a silent comedy spectacular featuring Humphries, Barry Cryer and a live orchestra. The afternoon performance will still take place. Details here.
