Fry will ask his legion of fans (1.6 million and counting) for subjects to talk about in the show which takes place at the Royal Albert Hall on the 20th September.
On his blog Fry wrote: ‘I have MC-ed, hosted, guested and otherwise infested that noble venue many times over the last quarter century, but never have I done a whole evening on my own. I am excited.’
Fry previously tried out the show in Sydney and Melbourne last month.
Speaking to The Guardian he said: ‘It’s only a slight exaggeration to say that as I was standing in the wings of the Sydney Opera House, I thought, ‘I don't actually have a show’.’
If it all goes swimmingly the QI host hinted that he could take the show on tour:
‘I just want to make it fun, and one has to assume that people coming to see the show like me. If it goes well then I may well do a tour. People are already tweeting me about the fact it is just London, so it could be whole new chapter in my life.’
