Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Alison loves to do star jumps in the water. She also likes to watch people fight in chip shops. Her two worlds collide as a fight breaks out in aqua-aerobics and she's never felt so alive. When the foam settles, Alison realises she's an outwardly nice person who lives for confrontation. Host of BBC Sounds Wheel of Misfortune, The Guilty Feminist podcast and writer for Have I Got News For You. 'A kind of genius' **** (Irish Times).
This American girl in London had it all. Then one day the Wicked Witch of Westminster, Priti Patel told Abigoliah to click her sparkly heels and go 'home'. In that instance, everything changed. Abigoliah was faced with the fight of her life and the stakes couldn't be higher. If she wins, she stays in the UK. If she loses, she loses everything. Abigoliah has appeared on Comedy Central, Channel 5, BBC Radio 4 Extra and the Guilty Feminist Podcast. 'Confident and brilliantly funny' **** (BroadwayBaby.com) 'The best kind of shamelessness' **** (Skinny). 'Comedy whirwind' ***** (ThreeWeeks).
Alison has appeared on television a few times, enough times for her mam to tell strangers that she works for RTE (she doesn’t), not enough times for her to get a free drink. She has appeared on Republic of Telly and RTE’s New Comedy Awards. She was a team captain on a panel show for RTE 2 called Choose or Lose. A TV presenter for RTE’s coverage of Electric Picnic in 2015. A talking head on the year that’s in it. She has a new chat show called the Alison Spittle show with guests such as Tara Flynn, Aidan Power and Kevin McGahern. She performed at the Vodafone Comedy Festival in the Iveagh Gardens and performed her show Alison Spittle Needs an Agent to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Dublin Fringe.

A former NYC yogi now living in London, Abigoliah is a disarmingly honest comedian with a tender heart and a foul mouth that compliments her wicked sense of humour. 'A foul-mouthed sweetheart, aggressively feminine, endearingly butch and curiously disturbed' (The Skinny) 'Her cheeky honesty is completely disarming and delightful' (Chortle) 'Racy and hilarious' (Three Weeks) 'Warm, funny and dirty. Abigoliah takesto the stage like a burst of adults only sunshine' (Celia Pacquola) 'A fresh and quirky voice' (The Herald Sun, Melbourne).
