Australian comedian Barry Humphries, known for his portrayal of Dame Edna Everage, is reportedly “unresponsive” in hospital after complications from hip surgery.
Entertainment reporter Peter Ford spoke to Sunrise this morning to provide an update after Sydney’s ABC radio reported declining health.
“ABC Radio in Sydney is now reporting that Barry has gone unresponsive,” Ford said.
“This is consistent with the information I got yesterday that Barry’s pain was starting to increase, so they (the doctors) started giving him more morphine.
“It certainly keeps you comfortable as a good way to put it.”
“Barry has an increasingly dangerous health condition,” Ford said.
Humphries’ children and wife Lizzie Spender are currently known to be at bedside as the comedy mogul receives care.
The comedy legend was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney this week and released a statement while he was being treated.
His publicist said, “Barry would like to thank everyone for their support and best wishes so far, but wishes for more and more.
