Stephen Fry Live
More Fool Me

Wednesday 1 Oct, 7.30pm
Broadcast live to Gala from the Royal Festival Hall, this is a rare opportunity to see the celebrated comedian, actor, presenter, writer and raconteur giving a one-man comic tour de force. This event is to mark the publication of Stephen's brand new volume of memoirs More Fool Me. Get a sneak preview of the book: a heady tale of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s in which Stephen - driven to create, perform and entertain - burned bright and partied hard - and damn the consequences.

Please note this performance is broadcast to the big screen at Gala from the Royal Festival Hall.
