.East Life: Exclusive Interview With The Queen Of Comedy Su Pollard
Thursday 31st July, 2014  
As the queen of comedy, Su Pollard, returns to our theatres this month with another outrageous side splitting production from the Ha Ha team, we caught up with the comedian to find out more about Ha Ha Hood and her visit across the region…

Tell us about Ha Ha Hood and your character?

Ha Ha Hood! And the Prince of Leaves is the latest show from Ben Langley whose shows are so successful because, even though they are parodies, the subjects are still treated with respect.

My Maid Marian is really independent, ballsy and brave. She’s very to the point, strong willed and doesn’t mince her words. I far prefer playing a character like that to a poor princess who whimpers and simpers all the time. Who wants to play a part like that? Nightmare!

Are you looking forward to working with Cannon & Ball?

I love working with Tommy and Bobby. I’d worked with them a couple of times before on variety shows. I think it’s an excellent bit of casting because they have a lot of stage experience and will bring a real strength to the show because they’re such a great double act.

.Get Bucks: Comedy Production Of Robin Hood Comes To Bucks
Thursday 31st July, 2014  
The Ha Ha! team are back with a brand new comic romp, this time about Robin Hood. Camilla Goodman chats to Nottingham-born lass and well-known comedy icon Su Pollard about the show, playing Maid Marion and why the whole family will enjoy it

Arguably Nottinghamshire’s feistiest female, Maid Marian, is played by Nottingham-born Su Pollard, who serves up a world-weary Marian – definitely more matron than maid. Tommy Cannon, from Cannon and Ball, takes on the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and Little John while Bobby Ball, currently starring in BBC1’s Not Going Out with Lee Mack, doubles up as Friar Tuck and Guy of Gisborne.

Rehearsals for the show began this week and Su, best known as playing scatty chalet maid Peggy in Hi-de-Hi, can’t wait to get stuck in.

“It’s hilarious,” Su promised. “It’s a cross between a pantomime, sketches and stand-up. It’s got all those great elements as well as a nice bit of music and a great set and costumes.”
