We Are Most Amused and Amazed

 

His Royal Highness turns 70 this year and, in order to celebrate this milestone, ITV Studios Entertainment and Spun Gold TV will stage this gala event at The London Palladium.

 

We Are Most Amused and Amazed promises to be a unique and unforgettable night where the greatest comics join forces with the most accomplished of magicians to celebrate The Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday.

 

This one-off event will not only see a cast of comedy giants take to the stage, but will also showcase the best jaw-dropping illusions from the greatest magicians in the business.

We Are Most Amused and Amazed boasts a stellar line-up, with ITV confirming the first wave of stars including Rowan Atkinson, Bill Bailey and Omid Djalili with magicians Penn & Teller and Dynamo also confirmed to perform. The show will be reuniting comedians Armstrong and Miller as hosts of the two hour event. More incredible talent to be announced.

 

Alexander Armstrong said: “This is going to be a night from the very toppermost drawer. What a colossal honour it is to be hosting such a dazzling line-up for HRH and best of all I’ll be alongside my lovely old friend Ben thingy.”

 

Ben Miller said: “Alexander Armstrong and I are delighted to be hosting Prince Charles’ favourite comedians and magicians at the Palladium, and all in a very good cause: relaunching our comedy careers. And raising a few quid for the Prince’s Trust of course.”
