This is a sparkling right royal variety per­for­mance held in hon­our of the 70th birth­day of HRH the Prince of Wales, a win­ning mix of com­edy and magic from the stage of the London Pal­la­dium. Hosted by Alexan­der Arm­strong and Ben Miller, the line-up in­cludes Kylie Minogue, Penn & Teller, Sandi Toksvig, Rowan Atkin­son (as the devil), Bill Bai­ley, Dy­namo and more. Many of the jokes are aimed squarely at the birth­day boy and he en­joys ev­ery minute.
