Lunedi Lunacy

Pam Ayres is a rather unlikely British entertainer: she reads her poetry on stage. Her 44 year careers as a UK favourite began when she appeared on Opportunity Knocks (an earlier, kinder version of Britain’s Got Talent without all the needless manufactured hysteria) and won first place. Since 1975 she has toured her one-woman show extensively, had her own TV series, done Royal Command performances, produced records and DVDs, written six books and been a guest on every major British talk show. Sadly her gentle take on the comedy of life has never transferred to North America – I’m not sure it would play well here but I happen to love her.

As well as writing poetry Pam has a way with a story – I have to admit it took me a bit to get use to her almost self-conscious delivery but I find that part of her charm.

There is a longer clips on YouTube of one of her concert performances: it’s worth a look just to hear her tell the story of how she got into show business in the introductory minutes.

August 4th is Work Like A Dog Day so get to it you lot! And I’m not sure how people who go commando do today but it is also National Underwear Day.

  1. I’m going to kill my husband, I have stuck all I can stick
    His constant criticising is getting on my wick
    He takes it all for granted, but tonight I can relax
    For the minute he complains, I shall whop him with the axe

    It’s true he’s got to go, you may not think I’ve got the right
    But he snores you see, and I should know I’m with him every night
    With a horrifying steady rhythm whistle, snore and snort
    Well tonight he’s going to stay asleep for longer than he thought
