Cabaret Performer & TV Personality, PAULUS (BBC’s All Together Now), enters his 30th year in entertainment with a loving tribute to his idol

About this event

Cabaret Performer & TV Personality, PAULUS (BBC’s All Together Now), enters his 30th year in entertainment with a loving tribute to his idol: the late, great Victoria Wood.

Joined on-stage by sought-after Musical Director, and old friend, Michael Roulston (Fascinating Aida, Julie, Madly, Deeply.), together the two prove what many have known for decades: that it takes two men to do the work of one woman – half as well!

Initially an hour-long performance, curated for the Edinburgh Festival 2020, PAULUS will remind us of 12 of Victoria’s best-loved songs through the decades, including ‘It Would Never Have Worked’, ‘Reincarnation’ and, of course, the classic ‘Ballad of Barry & Freda (Let’s Do It)’ as well as some of her lesser-known and more poignant compositions.

As well as the songs, PAULUS explores the musicality of Victoria’s sketches and catchphrases, the northern accent and the modern ‘Polari’ that has evolved amongst her legions of fans through the quoting of her enormous body of work.

Directed by multi-award-winning cabaret star and close friend Sarah-Louise Young (An Evening Without Kate Bush; Julie Madly Deeply), Looking For Me Friend is a nostalgic hour of entertainment filled with love, laughter and fabulous memories for Victoria Wood fans, as well as the ultimate ‘Beginners Guide’ for audiences new to her work.

Equally timely, culturally significant and a personal story from a life-long fan, Looking For Me Friend promises to be the theatrical hit of 2020 and beyond.

PAULUS aka Paul L Martin has been performing in theatre and cabaret for 30 years. Trained in musical theatre, he has won awards for his acting, producing and promoting work within the fields. He has performed across the world, including Berlin, Paris, Melbourne, Rome, New York, Dublin, Nicaragua and extensively around the UK. He is best-known to many as the hard-to-impress judge on BBC’s award-winning TV show, ALL TOGETHER NOW as well as previously working as a talent judge, mentor and presenter for C4 and Sky.

Organiser Ventnor Arts Club

Organiser of LOOKING FOR ME FRIEND - The Music of Victoria Wood

Ventnor Arts Club is situated in the centre of town, for people where creatives and supporters of creativity can relax, have a drink, enjoy a film, music and other regular events. The club is available for private hire and is a great location for receptions, business meetings and presentations. Our beautiful 1920′s bank has been restored and refurbished to reveal its previously hidden beauty but is also bristling with technology like fast WiFi, HD cinema projection and surround sound. Anybody is welcome to come to our events but joining our club makes ticket prices, if applicaable, considerably cheaper as well as free access to weekly screenings and other features.

Contact us on nfo@ventnorartsclub.com or call on 01983 857060. Visit our website's 'coming up' calander to see who’s coming to play, what we’re screening and other events in the schedule. Keep in touch via our twitter feed @ventnorartsclub and on our facebook page. If you are an artist who is interesting in performing or exhibiting, please get in touch.
