Torquay-born comic Miranda Hart has announced the dates of her Australian tour ahead of her UK gigs.
The award-winning comedian will be heading ‘Down Under’ to visit Australia for a limited number of intimate shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Fans will have an opportunity to see Miranda in these special warm-up shows entitled ‘Work in Progress’ from February next year, performing at the Seymour Centre, University of Sydney and at the Athenaeum Theatre, VIC in Melbourne.
The shows will preview material planned for her UK tour ‘My, What I Call, Live Show’ later in 2014.
Miranda Hart’s first excursion to the Edinburgh Festival in 1994 began her journey to become one of the top comedians. After ten years on the stand-up and sketch club circuit, Miranda went on to make her mark appearing in shows including Smack the Pony, Absolutely Fabulous, Hyperdrive and Not Going Out, but it was when her sitcom Miranda hit our screens in 2009, that her popularity really rocketed.
Miranda has since been crowned the Queen of Comedy at the British Comedy Awards winning three comedy awards, three RTS Awards and has been nominated for four TV BAFTAs for the past two series. In 2012, Miranda appeared in her first straight acting role in the highly popular BBC/ABC drama Call the Midwife a role that has gone on to win her a National Television Award for Best Drama Performance. The third series of Miranda aired at the end of 2012, with Miranda nominated in the Female Performance in a Comedy Programme category at this year’s BAFTA Television Awards.
