She was a Finalist and Runner-Up in the London Comedy Store's Costa Light Comedy Competition in 2012, a Finalist and Runner-Up In the 2012 Harrogate Theatre's Comedian of the Year and took the Audience Award at the same festival.

What the press say:
Abi has been dubbed by critics as "an incredible stand-up…unstoppable charisma, dominating the stage all through the hour with a wide range of insightful observations...She's a true talent, with her boisterous, laugh-out-loud humour that never once fails to gain laughs from the audience, she's an entertaining and one-of-a-kind stand-up.” - Edinburgh Festival Magazine.
"Brilliant, funny and charming. True comedy genius..one of GQ’s Top Ten New Stand-ups to see in 2016", GQ Magazine;
"Dangerous and the very opposite of consensus comedy...she cleverly disguises some hard-hitting stuff working on several levels at the same time, whilst she wraps up these subliminal messages with some Vaudvillian schtick …she's rapid-fire, infectious humour... unstoppable and triumphant...and she takes down target after target" - New Statesman;
"She breaks new comedy ground. She is a fantastic live act and one the best female acts on the circuit today. (Roberts) is one of those comedians you tell your friends that "you must see" - Independent;
"Raucous and incredibly funny" - Daily Telegraph;
"Fast-paced, high-octane comedy with brilliant routines...entertaining throughout and leaves everybody wanting more" - Gigglebeats.co.uk;
"A master impersonator and a gifted comedy performer standing way out from the herd. Abi Roberts has huge stage presence, commanding the room from the moment she steps on stage.. a wonderful blend of funny stories and audience interaction. Not to be missed. Steal a ticket if you have to." - Edinburgh’s Three Weeks
"Roberts is packing them in (at the Voodoo Rooms)...she is truly and hysterically funny and has definitely got the comedy moves. She does it all with genuine charm and character, with big laughs. She has an imposing range of talents and her impressions are, well, impressive. She really is more than just a stand-up". UK Comedy website Chortle.
Abi Roberts tour dates
Easy going and confident stage presence, Luke creates a natural rapport with the audience and a comfortable atmosphere with crowds of all ages.
'His eye for joke structure and rhythm was one of the best of the night' (Chortle).
'A brilliant young comic bursting with promise' (Arthur Smith).
Luke Graves tour dates
Since meeting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2000 Brian & Krysstal have entertained and delighted all kinds of audiences at comedy clubs, cabaret nights, festivals, corporate and private functions in locations far and wide.
Their sometimes bawdy humour is punctuated by silly songs, dancing and plenty of jokes.
Regular fixtures at The Edinburgh Festival for eight years, the duo have worked all over the UK as well as Germany, South Africa, Gozo, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Australia and of course… Peckham.
Brian is infamously grumpy and deadpan, while his assistant Krysstal is glamorous but ditzy. The combination is unique and very funny. Their timing is exquisite, their humour dry and sometimes bawdy.
'Wonderful silliness, some cute songs, some political incorrectness, some sick vomit and poo jokes and a lot of originality. It is all done with that intangible panache, subtlety and ability to laugh at one's self that is quintessential to British humour' (Peter Bleby, Australian Stage).
Brian Damage & Krysstal tour dates
'Anthony Miller is crazier than me' (Rolly Moe)
'Anthony Miller will make you chortle' (Brian Damage)
'A newer act Anthony Miller had some good gags but was evidently nervous' (Nik Coppin, http://www.Standup.com)
'... possesses a sense of humour so dry it's in danger of being arid' (Doug Devaney, Virtual Brighton Magazine)
