Abi Roberts - Adult Stand Up Comedian - London, South East Event Location: London, Bloomsbury Theatre 16th July 2018
"Dangerously funny and the very opposite of consensus comedy...she cleverly disguises some hard-hitting stuff working on several levels at the same time, whilst she wraps up these subliminal messages with some Vaudvillian schtick …she's rapid-fire, infectious humour... unstoppable and triumphant...and she takes down target after target" - New Statesman

"...it is clear we are in for a high-energy, entertaining performance.....she is hilarious, thought-provoking and a joy to watch....during the show, it becomes clear that wonderful comedic writing is not the only treat in store.... she returned to Russia this year performing in English and Russian – the first UK comic to do so. Roberts’s relationship with Russia on a personal level raises many interesting insights within the piece, such as acceptance (or lack thereof) and censorship in post-Soviet Russia. It also demonstrates how comedy can be used to great effect – Roberts’s biting commentary is so subtly embedded in her script that it is never forced, but none the less challenging....intelligent, self-effacing and deeply personal comedy: absolutely not to be missed." - Edinburgh Fringe Review

Comedian Abi Roberts burst on to the stage like a breath of fresh air with her new show Anglichanka (means Englishwoman in Russian); which was about living in the former Soviet Union in the 90s and returning after 18 years as the first UK comic to perform in English and Russian. Having seen a lot of stand-up over the years, I had never come across Abi before so I wasn’t sure what to expect - but I can say with absolute confidence that I will make sure I see her again now that I have witnessed first-hand how absolutely hilarious she is. This woman is belly achingly funny; she is clever, witty, different and moreish. The way she tells the crowd her life story is so interesting that your attention is not allowed to drift for a second, and the pace of her tales made her totally addictive. Throughout this show, we really got a snapshot of what living in Russia must be like; we heard about the kindness of these people, the coldness of the climate and the vodka-infused lifestyle!
