Comedian and drag star Myra DuBois is taking her Be Well tour out to the UK in 2023, and performing for a month at the 2023 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Myra will play the Pleasance KingDome in Edinburgh from 2 to 27 August 2023 (excluding 14 August) at 8pm.
Her tour then kicks off in Salford on 29 September 2023, and travels to Ilkley, Leamington Spa, Southend, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Carlisle, Cambridge, Cardiff, Oxford, Nottingham, Swindon, Birmingham, Newbury, Liverpool, London, and Brighton.
Be Well is billed a sardonic side-eye at the Wellness industry, with DuBois delivering her unpredictable, intelligent, sharp-tongued character comedy, and zeroing in on celebs including Shirley MacLaine and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Myra DuBois will be supported on the UK tour by comedian Frank Lavender. He is also performing at Edinburgh, in his show “Be Funny” at Just the Tonic’s La Belle Angele at 5pm from 3 to 27 August (excludes 14 August).
Both Myra DuBois and Frank Lavender are comic creations of character comedian Gareth Joyner.

More about Myra DuBois – from Myra DuBois
Myra DuBois is the acid-tongued comedic force of nature whose quick-wit and unrivalled crowd work has been taking the UK by storm for over a decade. A 21st Centenary renascence woman from England’s North, Myra uses her skills as an actress, author, wellness guru, energy worker, Gemini, and (dare we forget) singer, to enrich each member of her audience personally. So popular is Myra’s ‘take-no-prisoners’ style amongst her fans, the ‘AdMyras’, that fighting for front row seats is a frequent occurrence at her shows. Springing forward from the Burlesque scene, Myra has trodden the boards of such prestigious stages as the London Palladium, the London Hippodrome, the Royal Festival Hall, and the Soho Theatre to name but four. Myra has opened for Bianca Del Rio on Del Rio’s 2018 & 2022 UK tours, and Myra’s own solo show ‘DEAD FUNNY’ premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 before transferring for a two-week run at the Sydney Opera House, followed by a UK tour launched at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End. The show was filmed for an exclusive special on comedy streaming service; NextUp Comedy. She has since turned her hand to healing the public with her interactive self-help seminar “A Problem Shared” which was a cult hit at the Edinburgh Fringe and is set for a run at the Soho Theatre in May 2023.
