According to a recent article at gather.com, Dame Edna, who never ceases to both amaze and delight with her/his hilarious and crazy antics, decided to emulate the now famous music video. The only difference is that Dame Edna’s backup dancers were males.
If you’re a fan of the lilac-haired Dame Edna Everage, who has appeared in several shows including UK talk show “Parkinson,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and most recently “The View,” you can also catch her in her current show on Broadway “All About Me.”
The Edna Everage character first appeared in a Melbourne comedy revue in 1955. At this time she was "Mrs Norm Everage". An interview with Mrs Everage was one of the programmes screened on HSV-7's first day of programming in 1956.
Like most people, I love a good giggle every now and again. And when I watched a brief clip of Dame Edna Everage – aka Australian comedian Barry Humphries – dancing and singing to Beyonce’s famous “Single Ladies” song, that is exactly what I did do.
