PAM Ayres has been making the nation laugh for more than four decades. Funny and warm, her charming understated manner belies a rare comic precision. Her hair-trigger timing, her eye for the absurd details of everyday life, and unforgettable turn of phrase, combine to make her a true national treasure.

A writer, broadcaster and entertainer, Pam is one of the few authors who has had books in the Sunday Times bestseller charters in almost every decade since the 1970s. She is the author of several bestselling poetry collections including The Works, With These Hands, Surgically Enhanced and You Made Me Late Again!

Many of her poems are in school textbooks around the world, including the UK, USA, China, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, South Africa, Ireland and Singapore. In 2015 the most borrowed poetry book in UK libraries was You Made Me Late Again! Her autobiography The Necessary Aptitude was the UK’s bestselling female autobiography of 2011.

Recent radio broadcasts include Just A Minute, Loose Ends, and five of her own series of Ayres On The Air for Radio 4.

An Evening With Pam Ayres is at the York Theatre Royal, on September1 5, 7.30pm
