Barry Humphries Resurrects Dame Edna for My Gorgeous Life

Barry Humphries has put the defibrillator on Dame Edna and brought the old chook back to life. Humphries will star Edna in his new show ‘Dame Edna My Gorgeous Life’.

Humphries announced his retirement from live theatre in 2012. He then took his characters including Sir Les Patterson, Sandy Stone and Dame Edna out for what was meant to be one last time. However, like Kiss and Cher, the end if only the beginning.

Promoter Paul Dainty is backing the new tour. “Dame Edna Everage is a great Australian export, an iconic performer, artist and star of stage and screen,” Mr Dainty said. “She has toured the world since the mid 1950s and we are delighted she has emerged from retirement so we can welcome her home again.”
