“Vic would have loved this”
Sue Devaney, Dinnerladies

Written and performed by the star of BBC1’s All Together Now, Paulus The Cabaret Geek, with accompanist Michael Roulston* of Fascinating Aïda on piano and directed by multi-award-winning cabaret practitioner Sarah-Louise Young, Looking For Me Friend is a funny and touching musical tribute to a much-loved and sorely missed national treasure.

“Delivered with relish and a wicked glint” ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“The most feel-good show in town” ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Daily Mail

It’s a whistle-stop tour of some of Victoria’s best-loved songs, including the iconic ‘Ballad of Barry & Freda’ (Let’s Do It) and the classic ‘It Would Never Have Worked’.

“We loved it!”

“Absolutely splendid!”
Zeb Soanes, Classic FM

This show is for those who loved Vic; those who speak her language; those who perhaps don’t quite “fit” life’s traditional boxes and for those who simply want to relish her breathtaking wizardry with words. As well as a celebration for fans of Victoria, it is also the ultimate beginner’s guide for those who have yet to discover her. In telling Victoria’s story, Paulus unfolds his own: a relatable story of a 1970s childhood, a life upon which Victoria made a huge impact, and what it really means to find your tribe.

“A warm, witty, whistle-stop introduction to Wood’s songs”
Musical Theatre Review

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. I’m so thankful that Mum introduced me to her work back in 1985 when ‘As Seen On TV’ first aired.” Paulus

“A warm hug in performance form”
