Dame Edna in Dick Whittington at the New Wimbledon Theatre!

Hello possums! Hello darlings!

The internet and twittersphere are awash with news and reviews of a certain glittering gigastar presence in the pantomime at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London this year. How gorgeous!

Non-entities around the city are flocking to this fabulous new show to brighten up their dull grey lives and take home some of that fabulous festive Dame Edna spirit.

Dame Edna is something of a Christmas miracle, isn't she? We've known for years that her shows can heal the sick with the gift of vitamin L for laughter. Theatre ushers often find wheelchairs, canes, and zimmer frames abandoned, as the afflicted walk away in perfect health after an evening in the presence of the world's greatest international phenomenon, royal confidante, swami, and of course, housewife/megastar.

If you haven't already got tickets, then quicksticks, possums, get clicking now!!!

And the in meantime, check out these gorgeous photos and articles to get a glimpse of the festive fun:

Dame Edna and Cast Prepare for Panto in Wimbledon!

You little darlings!

You've been wondering how to add a bit of glitter and glamour to your dull lives this Chrissie, haven't you? What better way than to add some megastar magic to the holiday season in the form of the gorgeous Dame Edna Everage in pantomime at the New Wimbledon Theatre ? How fabulously festive, possums!!!

Here's a little behind the scenes look at rehearsals as we quickly approach opening night. Dame Edna's manager Barry Humphries is mysteriously at rehearsals, and as they don't tend to get along very well, it seems that Edna has chosen to excuse herself during the time he's there. Very wise too, as everyone knows he's extremely jealous of Edna's success, and is only after her squillions!!!

Enjoy, possums, and get your tickets soon...

Dame Edna's Hat for the Queen in Oz


Dame Edna's good friend Lilibet is currently visiting her subjects in Australia, and all eyes will be on her wardrobe choices during this important commonwealth visit (in addition to the faux pas being made by Oz digintaries like Julia Gillard in curtsey-gate!).

Let's hope she has a selection of suitable hats to wear Down Under. But if not, perhaps she might call on Dame Edna to borrow one of Edna's gorgeous Kenny Everage originals? Edna might even lend her this iconic chapeau from Ascot in 1976:

Dame Edna Promotes Her Chrissie Panto Debut!

Oh Possums!

It's hard to believe, but it won't be long before we'll be pulling each other's crackers in front of a roaring fire!

Oh, don't twist my words, you wicked little darlings! I mean to say, of course, that Chrissie is just around the corner. And we know this is true, because Dame Edna recently took to the skies to promote her latest theatrical adventure.

She'll be appearing in pantomime this Christmas with Sam Attwater and Anna Williamson in Dick Whittington (at the New Wimbledon Theatre), and was recently seen at the London Eye with her co-stars, flying high above the adoring crowds:

Dame Edna in "Kath and Kim" movie?

Hello darlings!

Dame Edna recently revealed via Twitter that she was about to fly to Rome to star in Kath and Kim's new movie. How exciting, possums! Can't wait to see it!!!

I wonder if she'll stop in at the Vatican during her time in the Italian capital? The Pope ("Little Benny" as she likes to call him) is constantly on the phone begging Dame Edna for spiritual advice, so perhaps she'll squeeze him into her busy filming schedule.

I suspect she might also try to convince him to stop wearing those frocks....she doesn't like it when men dress up in women's clothing! How yucky!

And don't forget, if you want to keep up with all the latest Dame Edna news and views, follow us on Twitter. Quicksticks, darlings! You'll find us here:

Dame Edna & Will Young on The Rob Brydon Show!


At the start of his most recent show, Rob Brydon described Dame Edna as "The greatest woman who ever lived!". No truer words have ever been spoken, and she certainly added some megastar magic to Rob's show on Friday evening!

Offering some caring words of advice to little Rob, she purred "You're starting your career off the way I would recommend...quietly, very quietly. I think people will come around to you!" She meant it in a nice way, possums!

They later discussed the fashions of Lady Gaga, and she told Rob that Lady Gaga makes too much of an effort....then turning to the audience added "...whereas women here in the studio have made no effort whatever!" A fashion icon speaks!

Further into the show, upon meeting singer Will Young, she declared "I've never heard of you." Perhaps Kenny is a fan, though? And ultimately, Edna and Will made beautiful music together by singing a classic duet. His career will be one huge disappointment after such a show-business peak like that!!!

It was a show not to be missed, possums, so catch it now on BBC iPlayer:

A Dame Edna Media Alert!

Hello Possums!

Dame Edna has been a busy ol' gigastar of late, with new guest spots on radio and television for us all to enjoy. The world is desperate for a glimpse of the glamour whenever she can fit in an appearance between advising Obama, bailing out Greece with her squillions, and offering the Pope spiritual counselling (as well as begging him to stop wearing those yucky!).

You've got another day to catch the fabulous Edna on BBC4's "Barry Humphries in Weimar"...could she be a modern Marlene Dietrich?

And you'll want to mark your diaries for a glittering gigastar guest spot on the The Rob Brydon Show , 19th of August at 10pm, on BBC One! Don't miss it, my darlings!

And don't forget to follow @DameEdnaPossum for all the latest news and updates. Quicksticks! Get following!!!

Dame Edna, Dick Whittington, and Boris Johnson!

You little darlings!

This week we bring you some Major Megastar Merry Christmas news!

It has just been announced that Dame Edna will be making her pantomime debut later this year, playing the "Saviour of London" in "Dick Whittington" at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London. How gorgeous!

Dame Edna had this to say about the news:

"I am delighted to be making my pantomime debut and starring as the Saviour of London in Dick Whittington. Being a stranger to pantomime I am looking forward to all the fun and frolics and meeting all of you lovely little possums of London, but most of all, the thought of guiding Dick Whittington to become Lord Mayor of London thrills me. I did the exact same thing for Boris Johnson not long ago."

All of Edna's possums (and wombles!) will be celebrating the fact that they can look forward to a gorgeous glittering gigastar Chrissie this year in Wimbledon, and will be clamouring for tickets to see the world's favourite housewife, talkshow host, and international phenomenon as she treads the boards in London once more.

A Little Dame Edna Healing!

Hello Possums!

Dame Edna and Jason Manford!

Quicksticks, darlings!

If you happen to live in London, check out the SRO Audiences site and get your tickets to a fabulous night with international icon Dame Edna Everage as she cares and shares with Jason Manford on his Comedy Rocks show for ITV.

Could it be that Jason's mother has been begging Dame Edna to help Jason by offering some sensible advice following the - call me old fashioned - rather yucky antics that lead to his departure from The One Show?

She'll no doubt be probing all the nooks and crannies of little Jason's life with the insight that only a housewife/megastar can offer. She'll be laughing, but she'll be laughing compassionately...

SRO Audiences

Jason's other scheduled guests will include Jason Byrne and Paloma Faith (who appeared recently with Edna at the Prince's Trust Rock Gala 2010). Don't miss it, Possums!!!

Happy Australia Day, Possums!

Happy Australia Day, you little darlings!

To celebrate this gorgeous day, we're bringing you an Edna-rama assembly of antipodean antics and megastar magic!

First off, a link to the Australia Day Keynote Address given by Sir Michael Parkinson. Of course, little Michael couldn't talk about Australia without referencing the country's greatest gift to the world - Dame Edna Everage! He noted:

“Dame Edna Everage once said -
and we must never tire of quoting the classics -
that Australians are good at sport because of
'the sun, the diet, the healthy outdoor life
and the total lack of intellectual stimulation'."

What a gorgeous sentiment! Call me old-fashioned, but it is! To see the whole article, click here:

And next, darlings, is a little clip of Dame Edna addressing her adoring fans at a show in Adelaide in 1984:

Caring and sharing at it's glittering gigastar best! Happy Australia Day, Possums!!!
