Live (almost) from London’s iconic Palladium theatre, the nation’s favourite comedy star, Dawn French is about to reveal (almost) all the most excruciating gaffes and howlers she’s made across her forty-year career as a comedian and actress.

Dawn likes a laugh, and she likes it best of all when the laugh is on her. Her new one-woman show is more than just stand-up.

This is the ultimate, ‘Oh my god! You’ll never guess what Dawn did!’ show – as everyone’s favourite fictional lady vicar takes us through her career in comedy while simultaneously, laying bare her imperfections through massive landmarks of her life.

Playing to a full house at the Palladium, Dawn weaves together the highs and lows of her life through her self-confessed ‘stupid mistakes or misunderstandings.’ These excruciatingly buttock-clenching embarrassing stories give the audience a peek behind the scenes of her glittering career in comedy.

Packed with showbiz anecdotes and celebrity stories, from an epic fail in front of Sir Kenneth of the Branagh, to a toe-curling Abba audition for a once in a life-time part in Mamma Mia.

And even though this is a ‘one-woman show,’ we also get to enjoy a treasure trove of classic clips from her forty years in comedy – from early performances on The Comic Strip, to unforgettable French & Saunders sketches, plus an abundance of personal unseen photographs that take us on a journey through the life and times of this award-winning actor, best-selling novelist, and all-round very funny lady.

Dawn French is a huge TW*T (1 x 75') is a Phil McIntyre Television Production acquired for BBC One and BBC iPlayer by BBC Entertainment.
