|This is the program for Dame Edna's Christmas Panto that Adina, an Absolutely Fabulous London possum friend of mine sent me. |
She was lucky enough to see three performances, and even get called up on stage by Edna herself.
Do you know any 78 year olds who are getting dragged-up in hot costumes and doing two, looooonnnnnng shows a day, involving singing, dancing, running about, performing slapstick comedy, flying in from the rafters, and stunning audiences with their genius day after day, week after week?
But I have been celebrating Barry's birthday in a legal manner, and I'm really too lazy now to write another tribute to this, the man I love most of all, so here's a link to a prevous birthday tribute I wrote of him, and here's some lovely pictures of Barry and his divine dame.
|Barry's creation has become part of the culture. Knowledge of Barry's creations can help when you're in Jeopardy.|
|I don't know art, but I know what I like.|
|Barry was very happy the day he was "elevated" by the queen. I've been elevated by a few queens myself, and it is quite often an exhilerating experience.|
|Wouldn't Barry make a GREAT Doctor Who?? And Edna could be his companion. It would be Absolutely Fabulous!|
