For over 20 years, Pam Ann has been serving up first class comedy to audiences all over the world.
The Australian air hostess – played by Caroline Reid – has been trolley dolly to the stars, as well as headlining numerous of her own shows from every corner of the globe.
Pam Ann herself has reflected on five of the biggest moments of her career so far, exclusively for Gay Times.
CHER FAREWELL TOUR
Opening for Cher on her UK leg of her Farewell Tour in 2004 was a life changing experience… seven cities but my all time favourite gig was the two nights we did at Wembley Arena. That’s what dreams are made of.
Performing two solo shows at The Hammersmith Apollo… I couldn’t believe so many people enjoyed my comedy so much. It was overwhelming, emotional and a huge achievement.
THE PAM ANN SHOW – FOXTEL TV
Next was writing, co-producing and starring in my own Pam Ann TV show for Foxtel’s Comedy Channel (took me 10 years to get off the ground). I have the my dearest friend Brian Walsh and his team at Foxtel to thank for giving me the opportunity and believing in me.
BRITISH AIRWAYS VIRAL CAMPAIGN
Working with British Airways on a Pam Ann BA viral campaign was an incredible opportunity – and that video still stands the test of time.
PAM ANN LIVE FROM PARIS
Performing in Paris for the second time was one of the most incredible live performances of my life. There was such an amazing energy and love in the room. It felt like that moment you fall in love. That sounds so corny, but it’s the only way I can describe it.
These shows are the reason I continue to do comedy. You chase these moments and they only come once every few years. I must’ve been a Parisian gay man in my past life!
Pam Ann’s 20th Anniversary Tour: Touch Trolley Run To Galley is at London’s Leicester Square Theatre until 27 May then at theatres around the UK until 18 June.
