Dawn of a new era for French

Dawn French, the Queen of British comedy, is taking part in her first ever UK solo stand-up tour.

The show is called 30 Million Minutes and comes to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on October 13, from £35-£39.50.

The award-winning actor, novelist and all-round very funny lady has written a new show based on her life and career. 

 Consisting of various delights and riches, with the odd irksome tribulation thrown in, Dawn takes audiences through the various lessons life has taught her, and the things she knows for sure. 

 Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for ‘nosey parking’ and showing off, has driven her to grapple with the big stuff of life in public. 30 million minutes of life in fact; that’s how long she’s been alive.

 It’s also worth coming if only to finally witness what size she actually is.

Can we believe the stolen images of so many women’s magazines? What is the truth? Is she so unfeasibly large that she can hardly live?

Marvel at how one woman can mercilessly murder so much chocolate, and yet remain so curiously slim…

Dawn French is beloved for her double act with Jennifer Saunders, as well as solo starring roles in, amongst others, The Vicar Of Dibley, Murder Most Horrid, and her many appearance in The Comic Strip Presents..... films dating back to 1982 and the opening night of Channel Four.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £39.50-£35, available on 0115 989 5555.
