ABI ROBERTS: TWERK IN PROGRESS
In her debut solo stand-up show, Abi comes in like a wrecking ball.
She twerks, jerks and acts like a berk whilst asking big questions like: why does jazz have to go on for so long? With sizzling riffs, unique impressions and bits in actual Russian, this sensational hour about grabbing life by the bollocks will have you cheering for more and appreciating every gift that life gives you.
"Incredibly funny" - Lucy Porter, Daily Telegraph.
"Must see" - Viv Groskop, The Independent.
"Fast-paced, high-octane comedy with brilliant routines...entertaining throughout and leaves everybody wanting more." - Gigglebeats.co.uk
"...(Roberts) has a preternatural comfort with herself onstage and is unstoppable, triumphant. She takes down target after target, rapid-fire and infectious. She's a master of self-deprecation but doesn't hinge on it. She has a very graphic bit about her iPod being on shuffle, and she kills with it." Sarah Fisch, New Statesman (Arts).
"We will be hearing a great deal more about her. She was, quite simply, a superb opener act (for Michael McIntyre) and is destined for bigger things. If you get the chance, go see her. She will be big and she will be famous, so do it now before you are paying £25 for the privilege." - Alex Hepple, Comedy Chords
