Comedy legend Barry Humphries passed away yesterday aged 89. He was the genius behind Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson.
Humphries was also an intellectual, with a huge personal library of first prints and rare editions. He apparently dropped out of studying Law because he found it 'boring', from what I remember reading about him. Instead, he created a number of comedy characters - as much for his own amusement as ours.
Here's to a long life, well-lived 🥂
