‘TWERK IN PROGRESS’
Hotly-tipped stand-up starlet, ABI ROBERTS jerks, twerks and acts like a berk in this her debut solo stand-up show TWERK IN PROGRESS. Like a shot of neat vodka in the eyeball, expect mayhem, stealth feminism at it’s finest, pot noodles and Putin. Comedy with heart, soul and more than a little mischief from the Caitlin Moran of stand-up comedy.
“Raucous!” – Daily Telegraph. “Brilliant, funny and charming….even with a mind-bogglingly A-list industry in attendance. True genius. ” – James Mullinger, Comedy Editor, GQ Magazine.
Abi Roberts and her big hair exploded onto the stand-up comedy scene in 2011, after a number of years as a musical and cabaret performer.
Abi was a Finalist in the prestigious Harrogate Comedy Festival 2012 Comedian of the Year, a Finalist in the Comedy Store’s Costa Light competition in 2011 and she is a previous winner of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s sought-after Peter Ackermann Comedy Award – an award for outstanding comedy performances, awarded annually by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
