Get Behind This: Barry Humphries heads North

Live / Words

This is real culture. Hailed by his biographer as the best since Chaplin, Barry Humphries is one of an elite few capable of boasting a career that spans seven decades.

Through his central beacon of satire Dame Edna Everage, Humphries has stirred comedic tides on many of the world’s shores. Hailing from his – and her – native Australia, Humphries, through Everage, has accurately documented social climates for over half of the twentieth century.

Humphries has positioned himself as comedy’s chief whip of pomp and ceremony. His brand is outrageous and thought-provoking and here, on his final UK tour, Humphries’ live presence is set to end.

Barry Humphries plays seven dates in Yorkshire, part-time home of C/T, at the Leeds Grand Theatre. He’ll be there from Tuesday February 25th to March 1st. You can get tickets here. Make the effort, this one’s a life experience.
