“a damn talented guy/dame!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

one of the best deals in town is the free show at alibi when dame edna is in town! she really sings, no lip syncing. and she is smart, sharp and very funny. i am always impressed with her performances. and for $0 this is the best ticket in town. of course it is nice if you place some $ into her tip jar...but there is rarely any pressure to do so.

“What a Treat!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We had heard about this show but never took the time to check it out! You just have to experience Dame Edna to fully appreciate the talent and humor that is shared each week. This show is not for the bashful or sensitive souls. She absolutely strives to "lovingly" offend everyone in the crowd. She has a great voice. You will be entertained for sure!

“She said what?”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

If you're in Wilton Manors and want an evening of songs and jaw-dropping commentary, go see the Dame. Her off-the-wall jokes will keep you laughing and her voice is excellent; I especially like her unique rendition of Hello Dolly, although for others it's her version of Old Man River. I've been in the Manchester Room at the Alibi to see her many times and she never fails to entertain and shock while involving the audience. Like the other "ladies" who entertain at the Alibi, her show is free, so please, tip, tip and tip again for an entertainer who clearly loves Broadway and often delivers songs you won't hear elsewhere.

“Great Entertainment, a Good Balance of Humor & Songs”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I have seen the version of Dame Edna for S. Florida, several times. The show is always different, and the one thing about the act is that unlike most drag shows, who mouth the words of the songs, Dame Edna actually sings the songs with the entertainer's own voice, which is excellent. So the show is authentic as to the material and sync with the music -- and Dame Edna puts her own personal touch on the material, making it one of the best club acts in S. Florida.

“My stay in Ft Lauderdale not complete without the Dame”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

I have been going to Ft Lauderdale for four years, staying about 6 weeks, and my highlight is going to the dame Edna Show at the Alibi.

I love the show, and particularly get off on watching her put down some jerk that keeps talking as the show is going on. It seems you can't keep the idiots out, few as they are.

Sorry that she has not been booked in Provincetown, as far as I know, that would be a reason to go to P-town when she was appearing. They miss a good shot at filling up the shows there, not booking the Dame.
