Dawn’s Derby date at comedy festival

Dawn French, the Queen of British comedy, has announced her first ever solo tour, which includes her headlining the first Derby Comedy Festival when she visits the Assembly Rooms on Friday, June 13.

Directed by Michael Grandage, 30 Million Minutes will consist of various delights and riches, with the odd irksome tribulation thrown in, as Dawn takes audiences through the various lessons life has taught her, and the things she

knows for sure.

Book for this show now, because Dawn French is convinced it won’t be long before she is far too doolally to perform it. The evidence is there for all to see. She is already three quarters certifiably daft. The other quarter is utterly bewildered. And the remaining quarter simply can’t do maths.

With a sharp eye for comic detail and a wicked ear for the absurdities of life, Dawn French of Cornwall shares how she has misguidedly spent her whole life vigorously attempting to be a fully functioning female human.

Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for nosey parking and showing off, has driven her to grapple with the big stuff of life in public. 30million minutes of life in fact. That’s how long she’s been alive.

Tickets for Dawn French’s Derby date are £36.50 - £41.50. For availability, call the box office on 01332 255800.
