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.

“Gales of laughter from fans in the audience, but it is through Paulus’ interpretation of Wood’s songs that he genuinely touches a nerve.”
Musical Theatre Review

Paulus is joined on-stage by their musical director, proving 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

“Much more than a tribute show.”
Lichfield Live

​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.

“A born trouper…his act sparkled with appreciation for Wood”
Boyz Magazine

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 masters the often complex phrasing without losing the humour in each song.”
