Stephen Fry live UK show

Stephen Fry, host of television's QI and star of numerous TV comedy shows, including Blackadder and Jeeves and Wooster, is to appear live in London, at the Royal Albert Hall.

Perhaps less traditional 'stand up'. According to his website, Stephen Fry will talk about "travel, art, TV, madness with a tactful avoidance of cricket", in a show which will last 90 minutes.

Fry has recently been in Australia, where he performed shows at the Sydney Opera House and in Melbourne.

He next appears at three events to promote his new book "The Fry Chronicles", at the Royal Festival Hall, in London, on the 13th September 2010; The Corn Exchange, in Cambridge on the 17th September 2010; and New Theatre, in Oxford on the 18th September 2010.

The Royal Albert Hall Show is on the 20th September, at 8pm. More details are available from stephenfry.com.
