Dame Edna's Glorious Goodbye: The Farewell Tour
Of all the great female stars to emerge from Australia -- Olivia-Newton John, Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman -- none can hold a candle to the rhinestone-studded awesomeness of Dame Edna Everage, the planet's reigning (and only) "gigastar." On her Glorious Goodbye Farewell Tour, Dame Edna isn't going out with a whimper, but with a rapid-fire explosion of laughter and cheers. Modestly described as "probably the most gifted and talented woman in the world today," Dame Edna, the comic creation of show star Barry Humphries, has circled the globe dispensing sage advice and take-no-prisoners comedy to her beloved "possums." Now this neon-haired housewife, investigative journalist, talk show host, children's book illustrator and spin doctor is capping a spectacular career spanning 50 years with celebratory farewell performances across the globe, proving one last time that no one's safe from the Dame's wicked tongue!
