Singing, dancing, mean jokes, drinking and swearing.
If you expect something decent, politically correct, I only have one advice: don’t go!
I always missed her shows when she was in Belgium, so when I saw Pam Ann, Melbourne-born Caroline Reid, was playing London for a whole month, I had to get tickets.
Susanne and I had some warm-up drinks at nearby Ku-Bar, where Sue fell hopelessly in love with one of the – hopelessly gay – barmen.
A few more drinks at the Leicester Theatre, and we were ready for Pam Ann.
You gotta give it to her, she really is something.
Pam Ann opened the show with her version of Madonna’s Living for love and had me right then and there.
She’s portraying various incarnations of flight crew, always over-the-top and foul-mouthed.
Pam Ann won’t shy away from the most not-PC jokes I’ve heard, ever. 9/11? Terrorists? Sex in the air? She’ll be servicing it all. Up yours!
You bet they will!
But what really impressed me was her ability to interact with the crowd, and turn anything that was thrown at her into a recurring joke.
Whether it was Sarah who was working for Waitrose sandwiches, or British Airways flight crew in the audience, they got their fair share of jokes.
As did the gays and the other guests.
She must be improvising this! I’ve seen shows where one ‘fake’ audience member was giving cues for more – planned – jokes. But this was the real thing.
Amazing talent of improvisation, and a real dirty mind who comes up with these kind of jokes – that quickly!
Can’t wait to see her again.
Get tickets for the remaining shows here.
