This time, Dawn has decided to call her tour something that will definitely grab people’s attention, keeping on trend with her recent penchant for dirty innuendos that delight fans.

What is the name of Dawn French’s 2022 tour?

The upcoming 2022 UK tour is called Dawn French is a Huge Tw*t.

In a press release for the tour, Dawn explains that the show is named as such “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 tw*ttery. 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.”

While appearing on chat show, The Graham Norton Show, she gave an example of the stories to expect involving none other than future king, Prince Charles.

Dawn explained how, while attending the premiere of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in which she voiced the role of Mrs Beaver, she told Prince Charles, “Tonight, Your Royal Highness, you will see my beaver.”
