28/08/11: HELLO POSSUMS! A Sunday wouldn’t be complete without a bit of ‘Dame Edna’ in you! A jam-packed Royal Vauxhall Tavern burst with laughter for the ‘Dame Edna Experience’ as she took to the stage to fill her regular Sunday slot, an almighty cheer roared when her diamante microphone poked through the velvety red curtains, waving and teasing her entrance, then the roof came off when those curtains were flung open and the Dame burst on to the stage.

I was in tears of laughter all through the show and, of course, as soon as she noticed me snapping away at the front of the stage that was it! Her face scrunched up, the room went silent and then

“Hello…Where are you from?”



“OH! And I thought you were a journalist!”

LOL, a massive roar came from the audience, she posed and carried on before the afternoon gave way to a night of dancing to the sounds of popular Sunday show-men Simon Le Vans, Andy Almighty, Sean Sirrs and very special guest Wayne G. Chill Out/S.L.A.G.S – a truly unstoppable club event!
