About the Show/Event
Information for Barry Humphries - The Man Behind the Mask at Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth (Comedy). Australian comedian and satirist and the genius behind Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson. In an intimate, confessional evening - seasoned with highly personal, sometimes startling, and occasionally outrageous stories - Australia's best loved entertainer will be peeling off his mask to introduce the man behind the clown. For more than 60 years, Humphries has held a mirror to Australia and Australians, revealing their virtues, their foibles, their triumphs and their failings through a gallery of adored characters, including Dame Edna Everage, Sir Les Paterson and Sandy Stone. Now he will spin the mirror around, exposing his own highs and lows, the good times and the not so good. Themes include Humphries' Australian childhood, family relationships, attitudes, career, and his experiences as one of the world's most acclaimed entertainers.
