Barry HumphriesBack to client list »
Barry Humphries is an Australian comedian, character actor, script writer and film producer, an award-winning writer and a star of London’s West End musical theatre.
Barry is perhaps best known as his on-stage and television alter-egos, the universally adored international housewife and Gigastar, Dame Edna Everage, and the foul-mouthed Sir Les Patterson.
He has appeared in a plethora of films including Bedazzled, Nicholas Nickleby, Finding Nemo and Spice World. He is an instant sell out each time he appears on Broadway and in the West End.
Barry appeared as a judge in 2008 on BBC 1’s I’d Do Anything, the search for the new Nancy and Oliver!
In February 2010 Barry featured in an episode of the comedy panel quiz QI series 7.
Barry is available as a host or after-dinner speaker for a whole variety of events. Alternatively his alter-egos Dame Edna Everage or Sir Les Patterson can host your event instead! Please see ‘Dame Edna Everage Biography’ for more information.
I just wanted to let you know that the client was delighted with the event last week, they thought Dame Edna was great and everyone had a fantastic time. Please pass our thanks onto Barry!
The event was wonderful – Dame Edna was a hit both during the day appearances at the track and the evening performance. In particular, Barry Humphries and Dame Edna were the quintessential professionals, working through adversity…without so much as hiccup. I can’t fault Dame Edna and the client certainly achieved everything they had hoped from the Artist. In particular, the evening performance was a stand-out with tears of laughter throughout the show from the enthralled audience.
The whole event was a huge success. Not only did Dame Edna do a great spot but she met a greeted the entire audience and made everybody feel very special. What more could you ask for from a mega star!
