Review quote

'Observant, mocking, gently thought-provoking. SURGICALLY ENHANCED . . . is one of her best' * Daily Telegraph * What's so good about her, apart from her funny rhymes, is the way she injects shafts of real emotion. * Oldie * 'Inimitable. Pam carries the audience in the palm of her hand . . . so warm and human.' * Daily Express * There are clear comparisons between Pam and Sir John Betjeman * Daily Express *
