STAND UP & SLAM!
Stand-up comedy: poetry’s idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, yes? Let’s find out.

Six phenomenal acts go head to head for your approval as poetry and comedy collide with unexpected and hilarious results!

MUSICAL CID
One Comedian. One Life. Twenty Questions. Press PLAY…
ABI ROBERTS’ MUSICAL CID is the cult comedy confessional show that asks, “Which comedian has a music collection like this?! Do they have an inner yearning to be rock ‘n’ roll icons and who listens to Michael Buble, Robbie Williams or Nirvana on the way to a gig?”

Musical CID is the show that delves into what top comedians have on their iPods, vinyl, cassettes and CDs and it’s coming to Camden Comedy Club with a different Special Guest Comedian every day!

Hosted by stand-up comedian ABI ROBERTS, it’s a forensic examination of the musical tastes, memories, hopes and dreams of well-known comedians from stage and screen.
