Pam Ann – Touch Trolley Run to Galley 20th Anniversary Tour Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House Saturday 17th June 2017
In 2017 the A-List queen of the skies, Pam Ann, plans to land the Louboutin’s on international turf and hit the tarmac running with her celebratory 20th anniversary UK tour, and Tyne Theatre & Opera House are thrilled to welcome her to our stage on Saturday 17th June.
Iconic international celebrity airhostess Pam Ann, has evolved since first jetting out of her hometown of Melbourne20 years ago. Pam - the alter-ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid - has developed cult-status with her masterful portrayal of a brash hot mess of an Australian hostess. She herself says as the airports got bigger, so did her ego… and her mouth filthier.
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, sharp 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.
In 20 years, Pam’s creator Caroline Reid, has racked up more flight miles than a tax-funded politician. A born entertainer, Reid’s knack for selling out shows includes New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, San Francisco’s Castro Theatre and extends to Australia, Poland, Germany, UK, Norway, Scandinavia, France, Ireland, Canada, Switzerland, Finland and Dubai.
She has headlined at the New York’s legendary Caroline’s on Broadway and in 2010 performed at the prestigious London Palladium, the Royal Albert Hall and sold out 2 shows at the 3700 seat Hammersmith Apollo – her largest solo audience to date. In Australia, Pam Ann starred on her own television talk show, The Pam Ann Show on Foxtel. She also hosted the National Live broadcast of Mardi Gras 2009 to an audience of 2 million viewers.Among Pam Ann’s greatest hits are an advertising campaign and training videos for British Airways, the inclusion of her hit live DVD includes ‘Come Fly With Me’ on Qantas’ in-flight programming, and being the face of Skyteam Sky Tips for London Heathrow Terminal 4 (www.skyteam.com). Pam Ann also performed on their first ever JetBlue – JetPride flight, a first on a US carrier.
Climb aboard and celebrate 20 years of Pam Ann – you can be guaranteed no one does it better.
Tyne Theatre & Opera House Director Joanne Johnson says: “I’m thrilled to announce the iconic Pam Ann as the latest addition to our ever-growing comedy programme here at Tyne Theatre & Opera House. Pam Ann is such a cult comedy figure and it’s an honour that we are able to have her perform on our stage. She’s in good company: our fantastic comedy line-up for 2016/2017 features the likes of Rich Hall, Omid Djalili and Jerry Sadowitz, with more to be announced!”
