Storyline

In each of these comical talk-show-parodies, without actual script continuity, the outrageously frocked diva-type character Dame Edna Everage, a transvestite part of Australian comedian Barry Humphries, receives in her exclusive, grand luxury residence, where she 'holds court' for the happy few, several international celebrities (actors, singers...) which are all expected to be humbly grateful for the priceless privilege to get an audience with her, and receive both inclusive praise ('we stars') and constant sneers displaying the host's utter superiority, while the public gets a similarly whimsical treatment. Her good-for-nothing sidekick, ancient 'bridesmaid' Madge Allsop, is another cross-dresser, whose main function is to be shamelessly abused. Written by KGF Vissers

The funniest talk show ever
8 February 2004 | by otis167See all my reviews

My local PBS station ran this series several years ago, and I still can't get this riotous program out of my mind. I usually watch the first few minutes of Letterman or Leno, but this is one talk show that I watch to the zany end.

All talk shows have some boring guests, but this will definitely not be tolerated on Dame Edna's show! At the touch of a button, Dame Edna removes any tiresome talker. He or she may fall through a trap door or be removed with an ejection seat. I hope Dave and Jay are listening!

The sets are lovely, except for the private elevator which has trapped several super stars. Dame Edna, as always, is beautifully dressed. My favorite gown is adorned with a large animated stuffed lizard which on command can stick out it's lovely forked tongue. Don't miss this wonderful experience!
