  1. I just Love Dame Edna.. And his humour.. But his portrayal of Les Patterson, lol.. well, enough said..
    But he has a great gift for making people laugh and his believable Dame Edna.. Just great.. 🙂

  2. LMBO! Calista Flockhart! Cracked me up! (No pun intended! 😀 ) What I enjoyed the most was watching Judi Dench’s facial expressions and body language as she was sitting there! Half the time she looked scared to death or appalled by what was being said. I thought that was interesting.

    1. I don’t think she quite knew what to make of it. Her body language was quite defensive. But then, that just spurs DE on to be even more outrageous! I watched another video last night which had Roger Moore in it. He was the same too- didn’t know what to make of it all.
