National treasure Barry Humphries will take you on a revelatory trip through his colourful life and theatrical career with his new show The Man Behind the Mask.

An intimate, confessional evening – seasoned with highly personal, sometimes startling, and occasionally outrageous stories.

The UK welcomed Dame Edna with open arms, immediately becoming a household favorite and filling our living rooms with many years of laughter. His other alter egos included Sir Les Patterson and Sandy Stone.  

Barry peels off his mask to introduce the man behind the clown. 

‘up-close-and-personal encounter
with a comic genius’

The Age - Melbourne

Hearing about Dame Edna, Sir Les, et al in the first person comes as a surprise, but an entirely welcome one. Performing as himself, we suddenly realise where Edna got that incisive wit, where Les got his deplorable manners, and where Sandy got his melancholy.’
