Dame Edna comes out of retirement for Adelaide Cabaret Festival appearance

We thought she was done but we were wrong: Dame Edna Everage has come out of retirement in spectacular style, at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, no less.

Audiences had a big shock when the flamboyant Australian icon graced the stage, leaving them in hysterics after a energy-filled impromptu performance.
