The doyenne of entertainment Patti Boulaye recently described as “A bundle of fizz” is back with her new one-woman show “I’m Comin Out”. In the show, Patti weaves stories of her life and career, while comparing and contrasting it with the exciting life of the legendary singer Diana Ross. She also sings songs by other such greats as Etta James, Puccini, Bizet and more.
Her moving autobiography ‘The Faith of A Child’ charts her life through wealth, poverty, near death in the Biafran War, to stardom. She was awarded an OBE for her charity work in the UK and Africa where she built five Clinics and also a school with Prince Harry’s charity.
Patti was the African face of Lux for 29 years and has starred in three major films: “Bisi” said to be Africa’s biggest grossing film, “Hussy” with Helen Mirren and “Music Machine” Britain’s answer to “Saturday Night Fever”. She’s a “Visiting Teaching Fellow” at Middlesex University with an Honorary Doctorate Degree for Arts and Education. Recent TVs include BBCTV “Celebrity Master Chef”, ‘The Real Marigold Hotel’ and ITV’s “Good Morning Britain”.

Having been wowed by Patti Boulaye in last year’s production of 'Bille and Me', I couldn’t wait to see her new one woman show, ‘Aretha & Me’.
Tonight did not disappoint. Patti is a consummate story teller, with a wicked sense of humour, who by the end of the show had every member of the audience on their feet, dancing and singing.
