Anna Mann was absolutely amazing! What a wonderful treat for a Friday evening ❤️ The way she engaged with her guests & made everyone feel welcome was everything I had hoped for. Loved seeing the audience and people’s faces...something you wouldn’t actually experience in a normal show. You didn’t have to have your camera on, so for the shy guests who didn’t want their faces on show this was an option. I would pay to see her again and again! Loved all her stories and although I have heard some of them before, her unique style brought back happy memories of the past and her glamorous but could we say somewhat frivolous & possibly sordid past. A true icon ❤️
