Barry Humphries & Dame Edna

Back to All Celebrity Fans


As a bastion of discernment, Dame Edna Everage always demands the best.


Created by Australian comedian Barry Humphries in 1955, Dame Edna adores Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok for its close proximity to the lively Chao Phraya River, whilst Barry prefers Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong for its spectacular views over the harbour.


In 2000, Dame Edna appeared on Broadway with The Royal Tour and received a Tony for her performance.


Barry Humphries’ and Dame Edna’s charity of choice is Ability Net.
