I used to like her/him however no longer find her funny though she is very clever.

Yes, I went to a show once and my husband was hit in the eye with one of the gladioli that she throws during the show!

It was quite amusing -both events!

I do sometimes, quite funny....even years and years later.
I have not seen live...
It is now getting I feel of late that maybe time for her to slip out the back, and put the old girl to rest'. Sadly, but time takes it's toll....and Barry is a tad forgetful these days.

One has to know when to call it a day....as harsh as that sounds.
That man is a genius, and if you have not laughed at the Dame, you have not lived!
I've seen a bit of her work, and she is quite funny. I don't enjoy stand up comedy enough to choose to watch her though.
Many,and I do mean MANY, years ago,I went to the most wonderfully entertaining live Barry Humphries show in Melbourne. He featured a good number of his most famous characters, including of course,Dame Edna.The entire show which went for about 3 hours minimum,was so clever,so witty and so unforgettable due to the genuine genius of the man behind the characters. I hate admitting that I find a lot of the Dame Edna stuff has now started to lose its magic.I think this may be due to the fact that in the early days it was so highly original and never seen before.These days nothing seems so cheeky and taboo any more.Too many comedians are just out to shock with unpleasantness,and poor Dame Edna was not in that field thankfully.
I prefer the earlier performances when the character first started and the humour was more closely aligned with Melbourne suburbia, the dress and the demeanour a little more subdued. What I absolutely hate is Barry Humphries character Sir Les Patterson, way too garish and disgusting..
Once in a 'blue moon'.
'Her' interview with the late Mr Charlton Heston, was one of the funniest I've ever seen. Mr Heston really didn't know what to make of 'her'!

I love watching interviews with Barry Humphries as himself. The one recently with Germaine Greer as well, was good.
The man is a genius, in many ways.

Get hold of film, 'The Getting of Wisdom', to see a VERY young BH as an Anglican Minister.
He was just SO handsome, when he was young!
He played an excellent part in a recent drama, as a judge who wouldn't be corrupted.
He was very handsome all those years ago donjo. Or at least I thought so. Of course he is not bad at all now. Get a bit sentimental about the comedy in the 60s. I remember seeing him in an old comedy about a cafe in Hackney is UK and I reckon he must have been about 19 by the look of him. Hilarious.

Just to answer your question to me, donjo, which I hadn't seen before, yes I said hello to Barry, but I didn't ask him for his autograph, as he was always talking to someone. I'll try & find the Charles Heston interview on you-tube!!!

Not a fan of Dame Edna. Never seen him/her live.
I quite enjoyed Dame Edna, particularlyvwhen Madge was "featured". As for Sir Les, although I disliked this character he was none the less someone you could relate to, like my great grandfather who always looked like he could use a good bath. Maybe it was just the stubble!
I’ve always found her/him very amusing! I have seem Dame E.E. live on stage, & I’ve also seen Barry Humphrey at an art exhibition opening, of Margaret Olley's, as they were always close friends.
Oh! miro_.....did you say 'hello' to him, & get his autograph?
by donjo
I remember loving her as a kid. Haven't seen her in years though, so not sure if I would still find her funny.
I never thought about this. I neither like nor dislike Dame Edna. I have never seen her live
