Cheap Barry Humphries' Farewell Tour - Eat, Pray, Laugh! tickets at the London Palladium
Act One of Eat, Pray Laugh! features gentle, grandfatherly Sandy Stone - perhaps Humphries' greatest creation - and the outrageous Sir Les Patterson. It's heady, hilarious stuff, although according to Dame Edna herself, 'this is just a bit of foreplay really before I make an orgasmic appearance in Act Two!'.
Surrounded by spectacular sets and gorgeous dancers, Dame Edna promises to 'empower' her audiences with what she describes as 'a meditation on loss, gender, climate change, gay marriage and ethnicity'.
Legendary entertainer Barry Humphries brings his iconic creations, housewife superstar Dame Edna Everage and gloriously repulsive 'Australian cultural attaché' Sir Les Patterson, to London's showbiz mecca the Palladium. Eat, Pray Laugh! is Humphries' final bow as a live performer, so we hardly need to tell you it's unmissable.
Scramble to see one of the world's sharpest wits and finest comic talents - and a gigastar of stage and TV for 50 years - as he takes the opportunity to thank his many fans by going out with a fantastically funny bang.

London Palladium Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the London Palladium above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:

The London Palladium is situated on Argyll Street in the West End of London, close to Oxford Circus tube station. Built in 1910, this huge 2298 seat venue is known for hosting grand, lavish productions and has long been regarded as the epicentre of traditional British showbiz. If you’re on stage at the Palladium, you know you’ve arrived.
The first performance at the London Palladium was a variety show and one-act play called The Conspiracy, which opened on December 26 1910. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Golden Boy, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Oliver!, Saturday Night Fever, Singin’ In The Rain and The King and I.
As is to be expected from any long-serving institution, the Palladium has undergone a great many changes over the years. When it first opened, the theatre served as a music hall and a place for melodrama, farce, operetta and variety. By the 1930s pantomime was also very popular there.
From the 1940s the venue began to present big name American stars in one-off concerts. Some of the legends that performed at the Palladium during this period include Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr. and Bob Hope. For over a decade from 1955, the London Palladium was the setting for top rating TV show Sunday Night at the London Palladium. It was during these years that its reputation as the venue all up-and-coming performers aspired to appear at developed.
In the 1980s the theatre was used once again for a revival of the television show Live at the London Palladium. From then to the present day the Palladium has consistently staged grand and impressive musical theatre shows, among them Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Scrooge, The Sound of Music, Sister Act and The Wizard of Oz. It’s also hosted the Royal Variety Performance on a number of occasions.
Whatever you decide to see at the London Palladium, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
