Pam Ayres has been making the nation laugh for more than 40 years. Funny and warm, her charming understated manner belies a rare comic precision. Her hair-trigger timing, eye for the absurd details of everyday life and unforgettable turn of phrase combine to make her a true national treasure. Recent TV appearances for BBC include Springwatch, Celebrity Mastermind, Celebrity Antique Road Trip, and Women at War: 100 Years of Service. Recent Radio broadcasts include Just A Minute and Series 6 of Ayres On The Air for Radio 4.
“Pam Ayres’ session was one of my highlights of the Hay Festival this year because I laughed so hard that my stomach ached for hours afterwards, and it is wonderful to witness a true craftswoman practice her art.” Review from Hay Festival 2015
