Dame Edna Everage
Before the glamourous Dame we’ve come to know and love, Mrs. Norm Everage, an “average Australian housewife” from suburban Melbourne, debuted on the 19th of December 1955 in the “Return Fare” revue at Melbourne University in a sketch called “Olympic Hostess”.
Over the years, Dame Edna has gone from Australian suburban housewife to global household name, known for gladioli, distinctive glasses, & colourful appearance.
In 1974, Edna appeared in the saucy Seventies comedy “Percy’s Progress”, billed as “It’s Not The Size That Counts” in American cinemas, along with Leigh Lawson, Jenny Hanley, Julie Ege, Madeline Smith, Vincent Price, Vikki Richards, & Carol Hawkins.
Famous for their acerbic wit, Dame Edna is a chat show host, raconteur, and general global superstar.
Also available as part of a group of 6 prints.
An official collaboration with Studiocanal, this print is part of the Funny Drag Icons collection of stylish pop art prints inspired by classic British drag artistes from film & TV comedies, featuring Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).
