One of the first real drag personalities to evolve and entertain us is going to retire. Years before even decades before Divine and a life time before Lady Bunny or Rupaul there was Dame Edna or â€œDame Edna Everageâ€ as for her full name. Fans since the early 1960â€™s have been touched and followed Australiaâ€™s sassiest import as she has toured and booked to sell out venues way before drag was hip.
With her one of kind songs and dance intermixed with quick humor and her love for her gay son Kenny (which she loved no matter what) this was one show to see. Dame Edna has played at Radio City Music Hall, entertained Queen Elizabeth and even had her own syndicated talk show in Sydney, Australia with guest like Sean Connery and Joan Rivers.
Yes with her brash purple hair and those trademark glasses, shiny sequin dresses this will be an act no one can repeat or duplicate. We just want to say thank you Dame Edna for making us all laugh and being lucky enough to know you.
