British actress/comedienne Dawn French is heading off on her first ever solo comedy tour.

The Harry Potter star will combine comedy, drama and story-telling for her 30 Million Minutes shows, which kick off in her native U.K. this summer (14).

French says of the venture, "I'm sick with excitement about this solo tour. I am enjoying the fact that I can't categorise exactly what it is, but it's somewhere between a monologue, a play, and an autobiographical slide show with a few funnies thrown in."

The tour will stop in cities including London, Birmingham in England and Cardiff in Wales.

French's shows begin in Sheffield, England on 5 June (14).
