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".
In her four years in professional stand-up comedy, Abi has the accolade of having supported major league performers such as Michael McIntyre, Sarah Millican, Jack Whitehall and Tom Stade and is to be found opening the show at many of the UK’s leading comedy clubs, such as The Glee Club, Jongleurs, Komedia and The Stand. Abi also became the first UK comic to perform stand-up in Russia in Russian when she performed her show Anglichanka to sell-out houses at Moscow Comedy Club.
Abi has been dubbed by critics as:
"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);
'Raucously and incredibly funny' (The Daily Telegraph);
‘…more than just a stand-up…delivers big laughs and her impressions are well, very impressive’ (Chortle); 'Fast-paced, high-octane comedy with brilliant routines... entertaining throughout and leaves everybody wanting more' (Giggle Beats).
"Roberts is brilliant, funny and charming. She's a true comedy genius and one of GQ's Top Ten newer stand-ups you must see' (GQ Magazine)
"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)

Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Winner in 2010.

'A particularly nice line in understated pay-offs' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'Well written gags, well executed one liners' (Chortle)
'... he's able to generate a stream of seriously good gags, the kind of quick,
sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines that'll always keep a comic in work and an audience richly entertained' (The Guardian)
'It's just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings... His trick is to make you think you're watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines' (The Independent).
Julian Deane tour dates
'A superb slice of stand up comedy' (Scotsman). Pashley is clearly a chatty girl, and a chatty comic. She eases her way gently into her set with a few pleasantries, and that pretty much sets the tone. Her routines are cheerfully anecdotal, and her observations based on the mundanities of life or the reminiscences of childhood.
Marian Pashley tour dates
