Joanna Lumley to perform at London Palladium

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 30 November 2017

Legendary actress and comedian Joanna Lumley will bring her personal show It’s All About Me to the London Palladium next year as part of a 2018 UK tour.

In It’s All About Me, Joanna will take audiences through her hilarious and interesting adventures from her incredible career spanning more than four decades, recounting some never heard before stories.

She will also be joined on stage by friend and producer Clive Tulloh, who will put to Joanna questions from the audience that they’ve always wanted to ask, making the show a unique and hilarious night to remember. Clive first met Joanna on the set of the Full Wax in 1991, and has gone on to make over 20 hours of documentary television with her, including recent adventures to India, Japan and the Trans-Siberian Railroad.

Of the show, Joanna said: “It’s utterly thrilling to start planning the stories I can tell, and the rapture (and gratitude, to be fair) with which I shall greet the audiences… I think it will be fabulous.”

Joanna Lumley’s rollercoaster career saw her begin in the swinging 60s as Jean Muir’s house model and muse, progressing to becoming a full-blown model, featuring in knitting patterns, mini-skirts, toothpaste commercials and the occasional front cover. As an actress, she first burst onto our screens as Purdey in the New Avengers in 1976.

From there Joanna will share her stories of her acting career that includes a starring role in Coronation Street, On The Buses, Dracula and as a brainwashed Bond Girl in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. As Patsy Stone in Absolutely Fabulous, Joanna became a degenerate role-model for a generation, winning two BAFTA Awards.

This intimate night with Joanna tells some of these tales and more as we gallop through almost 50 years in this business we call show.

It’s All About Me will play at the London Palladium for one night only on Monday 29 October 2018. Tickets will be available tomorrow (Friday 1 December) through Ticketmaster.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
