Oh Miriam!

Celebrated British-Australian TV and film star and raconteur, Miriam Margolyes, brings her new live stage show to Australia and New Zealand.  

Miriam Margolyes: Oh Miriam! Live delivers more, juicy, jaw-dropping stories from her eventful life and career and is presented on the back of her bestselling and much-acclaimed book, Oh Miriam! Stories from an Extraordinary Life. 

Buckle up for an irrepressible, hilarious and moving evening as Miriam shares some of her favourite anecdotes and divulges never-told-before stories and life lessons. 

From declaring her love to Vanessa Redgrave to being fed cockroaches by Steve Buscemi, from turnip-based comedy with Blackadder to being farted on by Arnold Schwarzenegger, from Graham Norton's sofa to Alan Cumming's camper van, Miriam’s life has been (and continues to be) an uproarious adventure. 

Miriam has charmed audiences across TV and film for over sixty years, including in her adopted Australia with the popular ABC TV documentary series' Miriam Margolyes: Almost Australia and Australia Unmasked.  

Reliably outrageous and always entertaining, join Miriam in conversation for a riotous evening as full of life and surprises as the actor herself. 

As Stephen Fry aptly put it, ‘There is no one on earth quite so wonderful as Miriam Margolyes’. 

Presented by Fane & Andrew Kay
