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.

After years of being protected from any sort of responsibility he recently became his nephew’s godfather.

A double bill of Edinburgh Fringe Previews from the talented mouths of John Hastings & Chris Betts.

CHRIS BETTS: Social Animal
Edinburgh Debut; Chris Betts loves to watch people, and his favourite view is from behind the bar. Betts has studied mankind at our watering holes and come back hopeful. Think Jane Goodall polishing glasses! Comedy Reserve 2014, NATYs finalist 2015, Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year finalist 2014.
‘Canadian Chris Betts has a confident style and a solid set… a glint of steelier edge’ Chortle
‘an enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics’ The Independent

JOHN HASTINGS: Marked From The Start
John is a premature born, sorta dyspraxic, agnostic 30 year old who recently became a godparent. How could this event help his relationship with his father? From BBC3’s Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular. Runner up – Martin Sims Award for Best Comedy Show 2015
