Pam Ann’s Emergency Landing!
Whistler Pride and Ski Festival Overcomes Last Minute Cancellation with Pam Ann Returns
Last minute travel is a nightmare, but for Australian Comedienne Caroline Reid the ups and downs of airtravel provide her comedic persona, PAM ANN the material she needs to skewer everything and anything that takes flight. As luck would have it, rearranging her travel and adding a last minute performance to her sold-out Pam Ann Returns world tour also brings some Mary Poppins magic to Whistler. She flies in, umbrella in hand after a big-name headliner withdrew last minute, saving the day and ensuring Whistler Pride and Ski Festival guests the riotous night of laughter they have come to expect.
Comedy Night is one of the most anticipated events during Whistler Pride and Ski Festival and securing a recognizable and reliable act is one of the trickiest parts of programming. Festival organizers were thrilled to have announced Nicole Byer to headline. Plans were in place for an exceptional event until despite signed contracts Nicole Byer withdrew her act from the festival less than two weeks before she was set to perform, forcing the event into a sudden tailspin. Her management team cited a production schedule conflict and offered to push the show into February but the suggested date would be after the festival had ended. Quick maneuvers by Festival Director Sunil Sinha ensured the show would go on with bringing Pam Ann back to Whistler to headline the night with all-new material.
With the character of Pam Ann – Australian comedian-writer-producer-DJ Caroline Reid has developed a cult-like status and continues to sell out tours globally. 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, acerbic 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.
Go on a jolly f**king holiday with Pam Ann Returns , a brand new show starring the perfectlyinappropriate- in-every-way air-hostess Pam Ann. From feeding the birds in coach to flying kites in first class, Pam Ann’s barbed wit has seen her hilariously negotiate even the most politically incorrect flight path. A spoonful of ‘sugar’, a xanax and some Mary Poppers will help you get through this flight with PamAnn in the most delightful hysterical f**cked up way!
Comedy Night takes place at the Whistler Conference Centre on Wednesday January 29th , produced in cooperation with the Resort Municipality of Whistler and Tourism Whistler. Doors open at 7pm with the show starting at 8pm. The show is followed immediately by the Comedy Night After Party at The CABN at the Aava Hotel, where Pam Ann will appear in character to meet with and entertain fans. Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is a weeklong winter celebration of diversity both on and off the slopes. The festival combines sports with spectacular social and cultural events at the award-winning resort of Whistler, British Columbia from January 26 – February 2, 2020.
The event is followed by an after-party at CABN at the Aava Whistler Hotel, the host hotel for the festival.
