DOUBLE BILL!

DOUBLE BILL: ABI ROBERTS & STEPH LAING

Sunday 25th October. 

Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm)

Tickets: £5.00 https://www.musicglue.com/camden-head/events/25-oct-15-double-bill-steph-laing–abi-roberts-camden-head/

A double bill of two tip top, critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe solo shows. You can see one or both – obviously we recommend both because they’re delightful!

STEPH LAING: NINCOMPOOP
Stephanie Laing realises that she is a very silly young woman. Her show includes odd noises, several drawings of ducks, a confession about some vomit, and a song about a newt.

We’re not saving the world here, people. We’re just trying to get by without making too much of a mess on the carpet.

FINALIST: Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2015.
‘natural comic timing and delivery’
– Chortle
‘Silly and self-deprecating…hilariously weird’
– Broadway Baby
‘Truly commanded the crowd. Disgusting and delightful in equal measure. She is definitely one to watch.’
– Three Weeks
‘In amongst a strong line-up – she stole the show for me. Her delivery is so good and material well written that she was the freshest and funniest act of the night.’
– Keir McAllister
‘Stephanie Laing offered up a gloriously silly set.’
– Broadway Baby

ABI ROBERTS: DOWNTOWN ABI
After last year’s packed sell-out shows at the Voodoo Rooms, Abi returns to Edinburgh with a new show all about being a “downtown” girl, singing rock and roll and kicking the Lady Dowager and her ilk where it hurts.

So pull up to the bumper and go downtown with Abi and her Labrador Al Qaeda. Join her in tales of Welsh debauchery, the perils of singing karaoke in Moscow and an unfortunate incident with Jeremy Clarkson in Harrods.

Find out what happens when your parents want you to be an opera singer and you end up tap-dancing in a pig costume, promoting a butchers shop. See what happens when you mix a Chelsea girl with rock n’ roll! Expect jokes, music and impressions that GQ Magazine described as “true comedy genius”.

★★★★★- GQ Magazine.
★★★★★ – British Airways’ Inflight Magazine.
