Looking For Me Friend

The Music of Victoria Wood

Written and performed by Paulus with Michael Roulston at the piano, ‘Looking For Me Friend – The Music of Victoria Wood’ is a homage celebrating the music of the late comedy genius and national treasure.

Two preview dates ahead of the Edinburgh Festival:

Mon 20 April – The Pheasantry, Chelsea. Doors 7pm, Show 8.30pm (double-bill with Jamie Anderson). BUY TICKETS.

Wed 10 June – Jenny Lind, Hastings (Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival). Show 7.30pm.  Collection on night.

Paulus will share 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.

Paulus is joined on-stage by sought-after Musical Director, and old friend, Michael Roulston and 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!

‘From the age of 10 I have been watching and studying the work of Victoria Wood. As well as giving me many hours of joy, it has informed my own comedy timing, sense of phrasing and particular slant on the world and how I see it. I’m so thankful that Mum introduced me to her work back in 1985 when ‘As Seen On TV’ first aired.’  Paulus

Directed by multi-award-winning cabaret practitioner Sarah-Louise Young, ‘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 ‘Beginner’s 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. 

With close connections to The Victoria Wood Foundation, Paulus intends to donate a percentage of net profits to them and their good causes.
