Stephen Fry bringing Twitter show to Royal Albert Hall
Story by Jack Foley
STEPHEN Fry is to bring his one-man show to the Royal Albert Hall in September.
Stephen Fry Live is scripted by submissions from the all-round entertainer’s Twitter followers and follows successful shows he performed in Sydney and Melbourne last month using the same idea. It will take place on September 20.
Fry told The Independent newspaper that no topic would be “off limits” and that he would ask his followers to suggest subjects for him to talk about.
Writing on his blog, he added: “I have MC-ed, hosted, guested and otherwise infested that noble venue many times over the last quarter century, but never have I done a whole evening on my own. I am excited.”
If the show proves a UK success, Fry has hinted that a full tour could follow with venues including Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and “all parts of England”.
