Back from retirement: Dame Edna returns
Barry Humphries is one of the most well-known TV personalities. However, you may have never heard him by this name before. You’ve probably heard of Dame Edna, though, right? Boasting a vibrant purple wig and those signature sunglasses; Dame Edna is one of the most recognisable people on television. Despite announcing her retirement in 2013, Dame Edna is back. You will want to get your Dame Edna tickets before she retires for the second time. You can also sell tickets to her shows here on StubHub too.
One of Australia’s most enduring comic characters
Dame Edna is not only one of the longest-lived comedic characterisations but also one of the most enduring comic characters to have come out of Australia. Edna was originally conceived in 1956. She may have started as satire unique to an Australian suburbia, but today she is one of the best-loved and most recognisable comedy characters we have ever had the pleasure of watching on screen. Dame Edna tickets have been purchased and enjoyed all over the world.
The distinctive features of Edna’s TV and stage appearances are what makes her so unique. Not only does she have an extravagant wardrobe, but she also has plenty of random quirks, for example, she always has an ever-present bunch of gladioli. Plus, her custom-made gowns and their gawdy appearance satirically outperform some of the most outrageous creations that showbiz Hollywood designers have produced. Australian designer Bill Goodwin is responsible for most of her costumes, which tend to incorporate Aussie kitsch icons, ranging from a boxing kangaroo and the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall to Australian native flowers and animals and, of course, the flag.
How Barry Humphries evolved Edna over the years
Over the years, we have seen the character of Edna evolve. Something Barry Humphries did exceptionally well was to bring her unseen family into the picture. Norm, her invalid husband, became one of the main features in her storylines. Madge Allsop, her long-suffering best friend, and her gay-hairdresser son, Kenny, and daughter, Valmai, became intrinsic elements of the acts. Dame Edna is one of the very few acts to make a successful transition to the TV from the stage and not lose any popularity. However, you can still get Dame Edna tickets to her tours and stage shows at StubHub today. Make sure you keep an eye out for any new events being added.
