Mr. Mason has impersonated Dame Edna since 2003 in multiple types of venues and for a range of audiences. His two hour full length shows have been placed as a single event in several theatre seasons and he is often a repeat artist for many employees. Here are a few samples...
Emceed "Holidazzle"- A fashion show fundraiser for the Bob Carpenter Foundation 2005, 2006
Bank of America Corporate 45 minute entertainment set- Philadelphia, PA 2007
Family Reunion in Elmer, New Jersey- 45 minute set 2007 , 2008
It was an absolute honor to have Dame Edna join the Development and Alumni Relations team for our annual retreat last month. As host of the Hollywood Squares you/she added absolute magic to the event! How you took such a brief amount of background info and turned it into an hour-long comedy show was brilliant! You left everyone aching from laughter and begging for more. As the retreat feedback indicated, everyone in our unit ranked Dame Edna as the absolute best part of the event, and more than one person suggested that Dame Edna become an adjunct member of the Dar team, returning to retreat each year.
Thank you for sharing your time and talent with all of us, and we look forward to having you back again in 2010!
