Joan Rivers to embark on UK stand up tour
Date Posted: 28/09/11
US comedienne Joan Rivers is heading to the UK as part of her Now or Never Tour, which kicks off in October next year.
The star, who is also an actress, talk show host and businesswoman, is best known for her loud, New York accent and razor sharp wit and she will kick off her visit when she appears at Newcastle City Hall on Friday October 12th.
Performances will then follow in Liverpool, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham and Bristol, with a closing date in front of those booking city breaks at London's Royal Albert Hall on Monday October 22nd.
Her comedy often revolves around picking on other celebrities and making fun of herself and her work was recognised when Channel 4 carried out a poll to find the Top 50 Comedy Acts Ever, with Rivers placing 40th.
Previously she has also been described as the "greatest, rudest superstar; the doyenne of female comedy" by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
