REVIEW: Eat, Pray, Laugh: Barry Humphries Farewell Tour – King’s Theatre, Glasgow

Originally published at: http://www.thepublicreviews.com/eat-pray-laugh-barry-humphries-farewell-tour-kings-theatre-glasgow/

Bawdy, bold, loud, lecherous, lewd, the adjectives are running out to describe Barry Humphries’ farewell tour. Humphries is definitely one of a kind and it will be rare to see his like again, so it is with a mixture of joy and sadness that the audience gathers to bid farewell to a performer who has been part of the British comedy scene for nearly 60 years. 503 more words

Eat,Pray,Laugh! Barry Humphries' Farewell Tour

As a birthday treat for me, we went to see Barry Humphries at The London Palladium hoping he may make us laugh! We had seen him a few times in the early days 70’s/80’s, so it seemed fitting to see his Farewell show to complete the circle so to speak.   340 more words
