Containing Multitudes Since 2004
The genesis-era of Mr Humphries alter-ego was far more interesting than the glittering megastar that Edna Everage has evolved as.He staged surreal street-theatre moments at the time he was developing Edna. Having various courses of a breakfast delivered through train doors as he commuted up the suburban line one morning; wearing waders filled with custard and claiming to be PUS In Boots.Photo about 1964? The establishment was the venue founded by the fabulous genius Peter Cook, and Humphries must have been very thrilled to mix it with Pete.Friends just saw him play San Fran and they said the audience laughed - I cannot imagine how any other culture 'gets' him - he is SO Melbourne, Australia.I hope he visits his pal Conrad Black in the slammer.
Dame Edna, I hardly knew you.
cool O !!!!
Cook and Humphries would have been pals during their days at Private Eye magazine, where Bazza created his Barry MacKenzie comic strips.
Is that a marijuana cigarette in his mouth? Outrageous! Smoke the thing or pass it. What a Bogart!
The photo is very arty - I am wondering is it by Australian Lewis Morley.
