She may have announced her retirement last year, but that hasn’t stopped Dame Edna from teeing up a final farewell tour in the USA and Canada in 2015!
The much-beloved alter-ego of entertainer Barry Humphries has been gracing the stage since 1955 – can you believe it?
If you or your friends are travelling in America or Canada early next year, you won’t want to miss this outstandingly hilarious stage show…it could be your last chance to see the Dame before the wig is off forever.
The purple-haired comedienne is known for her crazy quips and cat-eye glasses, and for making us laugh until we cried. Humphries and Dame Edna Everage will take their final bow overseas, a fitting end to a 60-year career that entertained audiences not just here but all over the world.
The dates for the shows are below…the perfect excuse to travel if you aren’t already!
