FRENCH & Saunders, Britain’s most celebrated female comedians, embark on their first UK tour for more than seven years in February 2008.

The show, which reaches the Liverpool Empire on April 16, will feature the best of their characters and sketches from the three decades they have been making people laugh, together with brand new material written by the first ladies of comedy.

Jennifer said: ‘We’re so excited about going on tour and giving the audience a great night out packed full of laughs.

‘We’ll blend the best of our old material with the new and cram it all into a couple of hours of great fun. It’s going back to basics for us and it’s what we do best.’
