Australians will have one last chance to see Dame Edna Everage on stage, with creator Barry Humphries revealing his new show will be his last live tour.
At the age of 78, Humphries has told News Ltd it's time to move on.
"Look, the fact of the matter is that I'm beginning to feel a bit senior," Humphries has told the Sunday Telegraph.
"It's the best aerobics you could do, leaping around on stage, but it's gruelling when there are other things to do," he says.
For fans this means Dame Edna, Sir Les Patterson and Sandy Stone will be retired from the stage for good, but not before one final goodbye tour.
Humphries says his Australian tour Eat Pray Laugh!, which kicks off in Canberra in June, will be his "fond farewell".
The show will feature Humphries' most famous characters.
"Les has become a celebrity chef ... Edna of course will be discussing her spiritual journey. She's on a spiritual journey to find herself, to lose the trappings of mega-stardom and become a real person," Humphries has told the Sunday Telegraph.
There will also be a new character, which is still under wraps.
