PAM ANN in “COME FLY WITH ME”
Wednesday, July 25, 2018 8pm
Pam Ann is the alter-ego of Australian comedienne Caroline Reid. Reid’s portrayal of the gutsy and glamorous air hostess is unique and wildly hilarious. Performances poke fun at air travel, identifying the individual quirks of some of the biggest international airlines and their stereotypes and mixing it with a generous dose of camp, humor and fabulousness. Caroline Reid has developed a cult-like international following. Even Madonna is a fan, describing Pam as “cruelly funny”.
GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST
Iconic international celebrity airhostess 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.
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. 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 2 million households.
Among Pam Ann’s greatest hits: an advertising campaign and training videos for British Airways, the inclusion of her hit Live DVD ‘Come Fly With Me’ on Qantas’ in-flight programming, the face of London’s Heathrow SkyTeam Terminal. Pam Ann also performed on their first ever JetBlue – JetPride flight, a first on a US carrier.
Based in New York City Pam Ann continues to sell out tours globally and looks forward to continue to tour worldwide adding South Africa and Asia to her World Tour in 2016 and is currently writing a Pam Ann movie and developing a television show. 2015 was a busy year for Pam Ann ‘The Queen of the Sky’ ending the year off with a sell out 6 week run on London’s West End and a 10 date tour of the UK and Ireland.
Flying high into 2016 Pam Ann has already circumnavigated the world twice with shows in London, Wales and Brisbane. She has entertained the gays on an Atlantis cruise through Mexico notching up 70 cruises in the past 15years with Atlantis Events. And she will be setting sail once again in May on the notorious Anthem of the Seas.
Sea to land Pam Ann will be touching down at her favorite terminal Joe’s Pub in April and then in August for the Summer of Pam season. She is a fixture at Bear Week in Provincetown in July performing at The Crown and Anchor for the past 7yrs. In between layovers Caroline will be penning a funny survival travel book for publisher Random House London and developing an APP for Apple called PAMOJI.
Most recently Pam Ann announced her up and coming 20th Anniversary Tour ‘Touch Trolley…Run to Galley’ with Live Nation Australia NZ which takes off in August and will continue on throughout the globe in Europe November, Canada December, Asia and South Africa in February before finishing in UK, Ireland ending with a bang in London at The Hammersmith Apollo in March 2017.
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.
