Barry Humphries CBE

Award-Winning Actor, Aka Dame Edna Everage, Film Producer & Script Writer

Barry Humphries is one of the funniest and most loved performers Australia has produced. A comedian, satirist, dadaist, artist, author and character actor, he is perhaps best known for his on-stage and television alter egos Dame Edna Everage, a Melbourne housewife and "gigastar", and Sir Les Patterson, Australia's foul-mouthed cultural attaché to the Court of St. James'.
