“ARE there any gays in Ipswich? I love my gays”
The buxom, flamboyant and pretty foulmouthed air hostess Pam Ann was not disappointed at Ipswich's Regent Theatre on Friday night.
And with her larger than life persona and risque take on life, neither were her audience.
At her best when bouncing off and talking to the audience, Pam, who graduated from the capital's gay cabaret clubs to the provincial theatre, is full of the arch-camp double entendres with which she made her name. And with liberal references to drugs and sex, Pam's show was adult only consumption.
Thankfully the be-bouffanted hostess found some Ipswich trolley dollies to play with and thanks to Julie (old contract British Airways “a true international”), Jim (first officer “on his third marriage”), Craig (Easy Jet “no hot food”), Nicki (BA “new contract”) and Jade (Virgin Atlantic - “Gatwick…aaah”) Pam had a lot of fun discussing the pros and cons of the airline industry and making them walk across the stage with luggage to disco music.
From her views on global warming - “When did you last see a polar bear? See we don't need them.” - to her campaign for airport expansion “I've seen the blueprint for Terminal 6. London's going to be called Heathrow.” Pam's irreverent humour shone through.

However, if there's a criticism it's this; a gig aimed at, performed to and known by a fairly specific audience, Caroline Reid's creation is perhaps, unlike her undoubted talent, just a little limited in its scope.
Nevertheless once you get her and into her world, Pam Ann has lots to offer and there were plenty of giggles en route to paradise.
