Buckle Up! Adventure Calls bitches! Pam Ann, the original queen of the skies - who has toured with Cher and crewed private jets for Elton John - is back in New York and this time, she means business. She aims to knock the plastic smiles off the imposter hostesses on TV's Pan Am in her raucous new production. So shut the F**k up, sit the F**k down, lock your seats in the upright position and prepare for the ride of your life.
Pam Ann is the alter-ego of Australian comedienne Caroline Reid. Reid's portrayal of the outrageous air hostess has been featured in advertising campaigns for British Airways and Sky Team. In fact, she is the celebrity spokeswoman of Sky Team Terminal 4 at Heathrow; featured on all in-flight video programming and seen on CNN and CNBC. Pam Ann has appeared in promotions for KLM/Air France, JetBLue, Lufthansa, British Airways, Qantas, SAS and even low cost British carrier EasyJet uses her videos in their training.
Performances poke fun at air travel, identifying the individual quirks of some of the biggest international airlines and their stereotypes; mixing it with a generous dose of camp, humor and fabulousness. Passengers embark on a journey from security check-in to boarding to, hopefully, landing.
