An Audience with Dame Edna Everage

The first ever “Audience with…” was recorded in August 1980 and shown on ITV on Boxing Day that year. Big names in the audience included Simon Williams, Marge Proops, Ted Moult and Lord Longford. How times have changed! The series was initially intended as a showcase for top comedy stars to show off their stage routine or tell their life story. Since 1995 it has been open to all manner of stars, especially singers. To date, more than 30 have been made. Introduced by Robin Houston.
