Sarah Millican Boycotts Theatres Over ‘Inflated' Booking Fees

Comedian Sarah Millican has announced plans to boycott venues owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group on her upcoming tour, because of the amount they charge customers for booking fees.

The stand-up, whose debut DVD is the bestselling of any female comedian in Britain and who was also voted Queen of Comedy at last year’s British Comedy Awards, said she objected to the high booking fees charged by the company’s venues, which includes the Edinburgh Playhouse.
