Dame Edna Everage attends a morning high tea for media on September 11, in Sydney, Australia.

Dame Edna Everage in She was later given her own gameshows and variety shows such as The Dame Edna Experience in and Dame Edna's Neighbourhood Watch in , in which she and her sour-faced "bridesmaid" Madge had a look at people's houses.

In and , Dame Edna appeared on Broadway. These were ostensibly not "performances", but rather "appearances", with Dame Edna giving monologues and interacting with audience members.

During and , Dame Edna appeared in the fifth season of the television show Ally McBeal playing the guest role of Claire Otoms, a client of the show's law firm who later became a secretary at the same firm.

The character shared Dame Edna's voice and style and was explicitly listed in the opening credits as being played by Dame Edna Everage although Barry Humphries received a credit in the closing credits.

Claire Otoms is an anagram of "A Sitcom Role". Dame Edna appeared at the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia.

During her act she sang a song containing her thoughts on Melbourne and Australia in general. More recently 20 May she appeared on ITV 's coverage of The Prince's Trust annual fundraiser.

She took part in a Blind Date themed skit, picking Chico Slimani over Roger Moore and Richard E Grant. In the summer of , Dame Edna appeared on Jay Leno 's Tonight Show alongside Billy Crystal.

On the 23rd of September, , during an interview on Parkinson , she revealed that she will be returning to ITV in with a new chat show, The Dame Edna Treatment.

The show began on Saturday 17 March , with the set-up being that Edna runs a health spa where various famous guests come for treatment.

On Wednesday the 17th of December, , Dame Edna appeared as a guest panelist on the ABC TV Show Spicks and Specks where she sang with presenter Adam Hills.

In , Vanity Fair magazine invited Dame Edna to write a satirical advice column; a piece published in the February issue created a storm of controversy when Dame Edna, in a reply to a reader who asked if she should learn Spanish , wrote:.

There's postage stamps. There's a coin. I'm on a coin! They've named a street in Melbourne after me. Melbourne is a city in Australia.

As she did a decade ago, on her 50th anniversary, Dame Edna has always felt it necessary to explain Melbourne both to itself and to the wider world.

Today, on her 60th birthday, Edna is physically absent but ever present — perhaps the city's most remarkable and enduring artistic export, a woman of the times and of another time all together.

At this time the character was billed as "Mrs Norm Everage" Humphries describing this name as "Everage as in 'average', husband Norm as in 'normal'" [17] and had none of the characteristic flamboyant wardrobe of later years.

His mother whom the interviewer William Cook said "sounds like a frightful snob" was a major inspiration for Edna, although he denied it when she was alive to protect her feelings.

Originally she was a "mousy" character and too quiet to please the raucous crowd at The Establishment club in London. According to John Lahr , Edna came into her own during the s when the policies of Thatcherism —and what he described as the "vindictive style of the times"—allowed Dame Edna to sharpen her observations accordingly.

In a interview with CUNY TV , actor Zoe Caldwell claimed that the character had been written with her in mind, but that she turned it down as she did not believe she could make it funny.

She then suggested to Humphries that he perform the role himself. Humphries played the character at comedy clubs, satirising the atmosphere of s Melbourne suburbia.

An interview with "Mrs Everage" was one of the programmes screened on HSV-7 's first day of programming in Another revue called Rock'n'Reel followed in at the New Theatre in Melbourne.

She appeared in a televised revue shown on New Year's Eve, , Wild Life and Christmas Belles. The character's overseas debut, now as Edna Everage, was in the early s at comedian Peter Cook 's nightclub, The Establishment , in London's West End, where she received a poor review from Bamber Gascoigne , then the drama critic for The Spectator.

Barry Humphries cites Cook as being instrumental in launching Edna's UK career. While her first appearances at the Establishment Club were a flop, the mousy Edna being too quiet to please that raucous crowd, a interviewer William Cook saw the early failure as a blessing, so that Humphries spent the sixties as a jobbing actor rather than as a pampered star.

In , the character appeared as Barry McKenzie 's "Aunt Edna" in the film, The Adventures of Barry McKenzie.

In the sequel Barry McKenzie Holds His Own , the Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam cameos at the close of the film to confer upon Edna the title of Dame , henceforth to be known as "Dame Edna".

Following the lukewarm reception to Edna's early appearances in Humphries' stageshow Just a Show and the BBC television series The Barry Humphries Scandals , [21] a growing awareness and appreciation among British audiences for Edna emerged and Humphries devised a stage show titled Edna Everage Housewife Superstar which was successfully presented in London's West End in the mids.

The show featured monologues, songs and what was becoming an Edna trademark — interaction with the theatre audience.

Edna performed a song for the show and was featured in the film of the show. She also appeared in the Amnesty show The Secret Policeman's Other Ball.

Edna made a cameo appearance in the film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In she was the subject of a BBC Arena mockumentary : La Dame aux Gladiolas.

I had to wait a quarter of a century for that critic to die". Dame Edna's success grew in the UK throughout the s and early s with semi-regular stage and television shows.

Her first TV specials were in — on BBC, but she became popular with broadcaster ITV after her initial performance on An Audience With Dame Edna Everage in , in front of an audience of invited celebrities.

She went on to perform two more An Audience With In , Edna starred alongside Humphries's vulgar alter-ego Les Patterson in the comedy feature Les Patterson Saves the World.

In the same year The Dame Edna Experience , ostensibly a talk show which she described as "really a monologue interrupted by total strangers" aired, featuring high-profile "celebrity guests" such as Sean Connery , Mel Gibson , Joan Rivers , and Germaine Greer an old friend of Humphries' , as well as Madge, her silent, sour-faced "bridesmaid and travelling companion".

In , the show was back for a second season, this time taking place in her "luxury penthouse suite" where her guests stayed and, in the case of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr , did her grocery shopping.

Subsequently, these shows were aired in the U. She appeared as a guest of Phil Donahue on his talk show on 17 February In , she appeared in another television talk show Dr Dame Edna Kisses It Better.

Edna continued her Australian stage and television appearances including a record five appearances as guest presenter at the TV Week Logie Awards [23] and a role as a co-narrator along with Humphries and Les Patterson of the ABC 's Australian social history series Barry Humphries Flashbacks in In and , Dame Edna appeared on Broadway, and toured America with both shows.

These were ostensibly not "performances", but rather "appearances", with Dame Edna giving monologues and interacting with audience members. Her show, The Royal Tour, won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding One-Person Show , and a Tony Award.

During and , Dame Edna appeared in the fifth season of the television show Ally McBeal playing the guest role of Claire Otoms, a client of the show's law firm who later became a secretary at the same firm.

The character shared Dame Edna's voice and style and was explicitly listed in the opening credits as being played by Dame Edna Everage although Barry Humphries received a credit in the closing credits.

He walked to the bin, opened the lid and proceeded to lift the roast and glass of champagne and drink from the glass.

Much to the amazement of those watching, he found a suitable seating area and began to eat the meal. Such stunts were the early manifestations of a lifelong interest in the bizarre, discomforting, and subversive.

Humphries had written and performed songs and sketches in university revues, so after leaving university he joined the newly formed Melbourne Theatre Company MTC.

It was at this point that he created the first incarnation of what became his best-known character, Edna Everage.

The first stage sketch to feature Mrs Norm Everage, called "Olympic Hostess", premiered at Melbourne University's Union Theatre on 12 December In his award-winning autobiography, More Please , Humphries relates that he had created a character similar to Edna in the back of a bus while touring country Victoria in Twelfth Night with the MTC at the age of He credited his then mentor, Peter O'Shaughnessy , that without his "nurturing and promotion, the character of Edna Everage would have been nipped in the bud after and never come to flower, while the character of Sandy Stone would never have taken shape as a presence on the stage".

In Humphries moved to Sydney and joined Sydney's Phillip Street Theatre , which became Australia's leading venue for revue and satirical comedy over the next decade.

His first appearance at Phillip Street was in the satirical revue Two to One , starring veteran Australian musical star Max Oldaker, with a cast including Humphries and future Number 96 star Wendy Blacklock.

Although he had originally assumed Edna's debut Melbourne appearance would be a one-off, Humphries decided to revive "Olympic Hostess" for Phillip Street and its success helped to launch what became a fifty-year career for the self-proclaimed "Housewife Superstar" later Megastar, then Gigastar.

The next Phillip Street revue was Around the Loop , which again teamed Oldaker, Gordon Chater , Blacklock and Humphries, plus newcomer June Salter.

Humphries revived the Edna character for what he said would be the last time and the revue proved to be a major hit, playing eight shows a week for 14 months.

During this period Humphries was living near Bondi and while out walking one day he had a chance meeting with an elderly man who had a high, scratchy voice and a pedantic manner of speech; this encounter inspired the creation of another of Humphries' most enduring characters, Sandy Stone.

In September , Humphries appeared as Estragon in Waiting for Godot , in Australia's first production of the Samuel Beckett play at the Arrow Theatre in Melbourne directed by Peter O'Shaughnessy who played Vladimir.

In , Humphries and O'Shaughnessy collaborated on and appeared in the Rock'n'Reel Revue at the New Theatre in Melbourne where Humphries brought the characters of Mrs Everage and Sandy Stone into the psyche of Melbourne audiences.

In Humphries moved to London, where he lived and worked throughout the s. He became a friend of leading members of the British comedy scene including Dudley Moore , Peter Cook , Alan Bennett , Jonathan Miller , Spike Milligan , Willie Rushton and fellow Australian expatriate comedian-actors John Bluthal and Dick Bentley.

Humphries performed at Cook's comedy venue The Establishment , where he became a friend of and was photographed by leading photographer Lewis Morley , whose studio was located above the club.

He contributed to the satirical magazine Private Eye , of which Cook was publisher, his best-known work being the cartoon strip The Wonderful World of Barry McKenzie.

The bawdy cartoon satire of the worst aspects of Australians abroad was written by Humphries and drawn by New Zealand born cartoonist Nicholas Garland.

The book version of the comic strip, published in the late '60s, was for some time banned in Australia. Humphries appeared in numerous West End stage productions including the musicals Oliver!

At one time he was invited to play the leading role of Captain Martin Bules in The Bedsitting Room which had already opened successfully at the Mermaid Theatre and was transferring to the West End.

Humphries performed with Milligan in the production of Treasure Island in the role of Long John Silver. The rescue by helicopter was filmed by a news crew from ITN.

The footage of the rescue was shown to Humphries for the first time on a BBC show, Turn Back Time. Humphries' first major break on the British stage came when he was cast in the role of the undertaker Mr Sowerberry for the original London stage production of Oliver!

He recorded Sowerberry's feature number "That's Your Funeral" for the original London cast album released on Decca Records and reprised the role when the production moved to Broadway in However, the song "That's Your Funeral" was omitted from the RCA Victor original Broadway cast album so Humphries is not heard at all on it.

In he starred as Fagin in the Piccadilly Theatre 's revival of Oliver! In Humphries reprised the role of Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh 's award-winning revival at the London Palladium.

In his friendship with Cook and Moore led to his first film role, a cameo as "Envy" in the hit film Bedazzled starring Cook and Moore with Eleanor Bron and directed by Stanley Donen.

The following year he appeared in The Bliss of Mrs. Blossom with Shirley MacLaine. Humphries contributed to BBC Television 's The Late Show —67 , but Humphries found his true calling with his one-man satirical stage revues, in which he performed as Edna Everage and other character creations, including Les Patterson and Sandy Stone.

A Nice Night's Entertainment was the first such revue. It and Excuse I: Another Nice Night's Entertainment were only performed in Australia.

In Humphries returned to Australia to tour his one-man revue Just a Show ; this production transferred to London's Fortune Theatre in Humphries gained considerable notoriety with Just a Show.

It polarised British critics but was successful enough to lead to a short-lived BBC television series, The Barry Humphries Scandals , one of the precursors to the Monty Python series.

In Humphries returned to Australia, where Edna Everage made her movie debut in John B. Murray's The Naked Bunyip. In —72 he teamed up with producer Phillip Adams and writer-director Bruce Beresford to create a film version of the Barry McKenzie cartoons.

The Adventures of Barry McKenzie starred singer Barry Crocker in the title role and featured Humphries—who co-wrote the script with Beresford—playing three different parts.

It was filmed in England and Australia with an all-star cast including Spike Milligan, Peter Cook, Dennis Price , Dick Bentley , Willie Rushton , Julie Covington , Clive James and broadcaster Joan Bakewell.

Like several other films of the time which have since been categorised as belonging to the Ocker genre of Australian film, it was almost unanimously panned by Australian film critics, but became a huge hit with audiences.

In fact, the film became the most successful locally made feature ever released in Australia up to that time, paving the way for the success of subsequent locally made feature films such as Alvin Purple and Picnic at Hanging Rock.

Another artistic production undertaken at this time was a collaboration between Humphries and the Australian composer Nigel Butterley. Together they produced First Day Covers , a collection of poems about suburbia — read in performance by Edna Everage — with accompanying music by Butterley.

Since the late s Humphries has appeared in numerous films, mostly in supporting or cameo roles. His credits include the UK sex comedy Percy's Progress , David Baker's The Great Macarthy and Bruce Beresford's Barry McKenzie Holds His Own in which Edna was made a Dame by then Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam.

Other film credits include Side by Side and The Getting of Wisdom
