atirist, talk-show host(ess), writer, painter etc. etc. - this man has done it all.
Barry was born in Melbourne on 17th February, 1934.
Humphries won acclaim for his Private Eye comic strip before filming The Adventures Of Barry McKenzie, starring Barry Crocker as the chundering Bazza.
Best loved throughout the world for his alter egos - superstar housewife Dame Edna Everage, from Moonee Ponds, with her gladioli and friend Madge, and for his portrayal of the tie stained, ball scratching, spitting on you when he talks, Sir Les Patterson, cultural ambassador to the Court of St. James.
Another Humphries alter-ego is the dressing-gowned old Melbournite, Sandy Stone.
Dame Edna's marital home is at 36 Humouresk Street, Moonee Ponds. Here, with hubby Norm, she bore her children Bruce, Kenny, Valmai and Lois who was mysteriously abducted as a baby.
Early '99 Edna dropped the Dame.
