Barry Humphries | Dame Edna Everage


Barry Humphries | Dame Edna Everage

Dame Edna Everage in her lilac-coloured hair and over-the-top eyeglasses is a character played by the Melburnian comedian Barry Humphries.

Long before she was known as "Dame Edna", Humphries first portrayed the character of Aunt Edna Everage on screen, in the 1972 film The Adventures of Barry McKenzie where Humphries played her as a traditional Aunt.

While Humphries freely states that Dame Edna is a character he plays, Dame Edna consistently denies being a fictional character or drag performer, and refers to Humphries as her "entrepreneur" or manager.

Indeed, Dame Edna has frequently said that the thought of a man dressing up as a woman for entertainment purposes is repulsive.

As Dame Edna, Humphries has written several books and hosted various television shows. In 1979, Dame Edna was the subject of a BBC Arena mockumentary: "La Dame aux Gladiolas."

My mother used to say that there are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet. She's now in a maximum security twilight home in Australia.
