Public Appearance at John Lewis, Oxford Street!

Hello, you little darlings!

We often get asked if people can come and see Simon as Dame Edna at the many events and parties he is asked to attend. However, because most of the appearances he makes are at private functions filled with very glamorous and powerful people, non-entities such as yourselves just wouldn't be admitted (I'm sorry, call me old-fashioned, but you wouldn't!)

But there's good news on the horizon, possums! There is a big public event on the 2nd of December in London, at which Simon will be appearing as Dame Edna! So you can all come and see him thrilling the crowds, caring and sharing, and probing deeply into the lives of Dame Edna's adoring public! Come and join in the fun - your life will never be the same again!

The event is called "Very Important Pedestrians", and Oxford Street will be closed to traffic that day, making it a pedestrian-only shopping street. There will be a number of entertainers on hand throughout the day to add to the fun. Simon has been invited to appear at John Lewis as Dame Edna from approximately 14:00 - 17:00 that day, so if you're in the mood for a shop and a laugh, why don't you join him?

Never mind Hallowe'en, there's only 55 days until Christmas - now that's spooky, possums!!!

New Series for Dame Edna on ITV!

Hello possums!

We were very excited to see that during her wonderful appearance on Parkinson at the end of September, Dame Edna announced to the great British public that she will be returning to
grace our television screens next year! This is fantastic news as we've been missing her while she's been enjoying great success in the United States with her appearances on Ali McBeal and her live shows on Broadway and on tour. (photo credit: Parkinson website, ITV)

If you'd like to see pictures of Dame Edna's appearance on Parky, or video of the show, go to the official ITV Parkinson site:


Her appearance was truly hysterical! She shared the story of her affair years ago with Picasso, and asked Helen Mirren if there were any nude scenes in the film "The Queen". Classic!

Looking forward to the new series with great anticipation!!!
