Comedy star Dawn French will be bringing her new live show full of "buttock-clenching embarrassing" stories to Ipswich's Regent Theatre.

The 64-year-old comedian and actor will be performing in Suffolk on her 'Dawn French Is A Huge Tw*t' tour on Sunday, October 16. 

French, best known for starring in The Vicar of Dibley and sketch show French and Saunders, explained the tour's explicit title.

She said: "This show is so named because, unfortunately, it’s horribly accurate.

"There have been far too many times I have made stupid mistakes or misunderstood something vital or jumped the gun in a spectacular display of twattery.

"I thought I might tell some of these buttock-clenching embarrassing stories to give the audience a peek behind the scenes of my work-life.

"Roll up! Book early to see the telly vicar lady be a total twat on stage, live in front of your very eyes. And ears."
