|Caroline Reid as Pam Ann|
Comic Pam Ann Flies High at Vaudeville, 29 Sep
Date: 27 July 2010
Australian comedienne Caroline Reid - aka Pam Ann - will star in Pam Ann - Flying High at the West End's Vaudeville Theatre from 29 September to 10 October 2010. Reid, who portrays a 1960's clad air-hostess, toured the UK late last year with her signature mixture of comedy, camp and glamour.
Reid has turned Pam Ann into something of a global phenomenon. In the autumn of 2007, the character starred in a hugely successful viral campaign for British Airways, which has received more than two million hits.
The comic, who has her own chat show in Australia, entertained fans in Germany, Holland and Scandinavia before jetting off to Canada and the US last year. Pam Ann has previously performed with Cher at the Wembley Arena as well as crewing for Elton John on his private jet whilst entertaining a collection of his star studded passengers. She brings a brand new show to the Vaudville Theatre this summer.
Currently at the Vaudeville, The Prisoner of Second Avenue, starring Hollywood’s Jeff Goldblum and Mercedes Ruehl, is due to finish its limited season on 25 September. Pam Ann will be followed at the theatre by An Ideal Husband from 10 November 2010 (previews from 4 November), starring Alexander Hanson and Samantha Bond.

|I completely concur with the 2 reviews above. It was an appalling farce of an amateur show. Iím surprised the audience were so well behaved with no booing. Perhaps they were all as stunned as I was. Pam Ann may have been funny before but alias she's not funny anymore just vulgar & crude. - Lorna||30 Sep 10|
|1st night....appalling bad. The first half ended abruptly 25minutes in with a bemused audience unsure of what was happening. The second half did not improve with a constant barrage of "it will be much better tomorrow night" little compensation to those of us who had parted with our hard earned cash to see the first night.
If youíve seen Pam Ann in the past...leave it that way. You will only be bitterly disappointed with this offering. - adele wills||30 Sep 10|
|Have seen Pam ann before, but last night's show was the most dreadful, unfunny, vulgar, unprofessional show I have seen on the London stage in over 20 years. The "performance" began 25 minutes late. Pam spouted recycled coarse jokes (maybe 'comments' would be a better word -- jokes implies they were funny --most were not. After 27 minutes of what would have been booed off the stage of any local club's amateur night, Pam simply left the stage... And the house lights came up. The audience sat still for a couple of minutes trying to determine if this was the interval (after only 27 minutes), or if Pam had simply bored herself so badly even she needed a break. In any case, I cannot comment upon the second act -- if there was one. We had no desire to see more of this slow-motion air crash. Terry johnson - Terry Johnson||30 Sep 10|
