Saturday, June 15, 2019 8pm
Ladies and gentlemen, at this time we ask that you fasten your seatbelts and secure all baggage in the overhead compartments…it’s gonna be a bumpy ride! Following a several sold-out engagements in 2018, iconic international celebrity airhostess Pam Ann returns to Martinis Above Fourth | Table + Stage with her latest show, Bing Bong. Pam’s barbed wit has seen her fly many a risky route and negotiate even the most politically incorrect flight path with her blisteringly funny take on the world of airlines and aircrew. Nothing is out of reach of her pristine white gloves, strutting up the aisle with a trolley full of beautifully unpredictable, acerbic airline satire.
GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST
Pam Ann has evolved since first jetting out of her hometown of Melbourne 20 years ago. Pam—the alter-ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid—has developed a cult like status both here and overseas with her masterful portrayal of an international hostie.
There’s not much Pam hasn’t seen or done—from crewing Elton John’s private jet at his express request, sharing a stadium stage on a tour of the UK with Cher, and counting Madonna in her legion of devoted fans worldwide. When she’s not jet-setting with the stars or flying the world sourcing material for her next performance, she can be found selling-out every stage she hits—from New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom to San Francisco’s Castro Theatre, Sydney’s iconic State Theatre to Melbourne’s Athenaeum. She’s headlined at the legendary Caroline’s on Broadway in New York, performed at the prestigious London Palladium, The Royal Albert Hall and sold out 2 shows at the 3600 seat Hammersmith Apollo – her largest solo audience to date. True to her status as an international comedy icon, she’s toured UK, Ireland, Australia, Hong Kong, USA, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Belgium, France and Canada.
In her native Australia, Pam Ann starred on her own television talk show, “The Pam Ann Show,” on the national Foxtel channel. She also hosted Australia’s live broadcast of Mardi Gras 2009, airing in over two million households.
Among Pam Ann’s greatest hits: an advertising campaign and training videos for British Airways, the inclusion of her hit live show, “Come Fly with Me,” on Qantas’ in-flight programming, and the face of London’s Heathrow SkyTeam Terminal. Pam Ann also performed on the first-ever JetPride flight for JetBlue, a first for a U.S. carrier.
Her caustic wit knows no bounds so fasten your seat belts and prepare to take off. The Queen of the Sky guarantees a turbulent flight.
