While she gets ready to disembark on her latest UK tour this October, we here at Vada managed to get a cosy layover with the Queen of the Sky herself, Pam Ann.

If you had to describe your unique brand of comedy to the uninitiated (probably someone who flies economy) how would you describe yourself?

Madonna nailed it when she described my comedy as ‘cruelly funny’.

You have had the opportunity to lovingly lampoon the traditional air crew stereotype with some hilarious stories that often have your audience in stitches. But have you personally ever had any travel horror stories?

Not real horror stories where doors have flown off, but I have experienced lightning hitting my plane before and I thought I might die. We were making our final approach into Frankfurt. Everyone was just silent. No family or friends flashed in my mind.

I was thinking, ‘Wow! Me dying will make a great costume for the gays for Halloween!’

Your unique style of humour has been called tongue-in-cheek. Do you think it is important for comedy to keep pushing the envelope?

Envelopes always love to be pushed and posted!

You are just about to start a brand new tour here in the UK. How are fans here different from anyone else in the world?

They are shitfaced and fun.

Having lived in London yourself, as well as performing there, does coming back feel a bit like coming home?

It feels all warm and cosy.

You have had the opportunity to travel all over the world, but where is your favourite destination to perform, or relax?

Miami Beach. Nothing beats a hot Latino audience!

You have a tremendous following in the gay community across the world. Does it ever blow your mind that you are so popular with the LGBT community?

They are my family! I grew up in the LGBT community so it feels normal to me. I don’t think too much about anything to do with popularity.

How do you feel about the decision by the Supreme Court to legalise gay marriage in the USA?

About fucking time!

Do you have anything to say to the fans who are just itching for you to start your new tour?

I have herpes 1 and 2.

Pam Ann: Queen of the Sky takes off from Leicester Square Theatre in London on 30 September 2015.
