Dame Edna Everage, and her alter ego Barry Humphries, is a favourite on The Mike Walsh Show, even hosting the show on occasion.
Here Everage steals the show with her Tina Turner-style wig and use of 'camera technique' to steal the limelight from the host. Walsh goes with it and the live studio audience loves it.
Everage is a big name-dropper and here she talks about Queen Elizabeth II and former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam - who conferred her Damehood upon her.
This clip is from The Mike Walsh Show in 1985.
