Williams makes UK stage comeback

...alongside Cleese and Atkinson

Robin Williams is to perform stand-up on a British theatre stage for the first time in 25 years, as part of a star-studded charity show.

The comic will join John Cleese and Rowan Atkinson for the benefit gig for the Prince's Trust, part of Prince Charles’s 60th birthday celebrations.

The show, We Are Most Amused, will take place at London's New Wimbledon Theatre on November 12 and will be broadcast on ITV1 at a later date.

An ITV spokesman said: ‘The Prince of Wales will be in attendance with The Duchess of Cornwall and will be treated to a mix of live stand-up and comedy sketches from the world’s greatest comedians.

‘The line-up will bring together the very best in comedy talent – from much-loved established names to fresh young acts from the stand-up circuit – a combination which will appeal to all ages and, above all, to comedy fan and guest of honour The Prince of Wales.’

Tickets will go on sale at 10.30am tomorrow (Wednesday).
