Abi trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and gained prominence in comedy and sketch shows, including the satirical comedy Newsrevue, Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and Jonathan Harvey’s stage show, Taking Charlie. She has also appeared as a Guest contributor on BBC Radio 4’s Midweek, Weekend and Outlook, as well as on comedy radio stations FubBar Radio, Moscow Comedy FM (Russia) and Wildfire Radio (US) and she has just filmed her first sitcom pilot for Sky playing a Russian woman Irina in Cameron Gordon’s Bucketless.

Abi has been dubbed by critics as "Brilliant, funny and charming. True comedy genius..one of GQ’s Top Ten New Stand-ups to see in 2016" - James Mullinger, Comedy Editor, GQ Magazine; "Very funny, rapid-fire, infectious humour...unstoppable and triumphant… takes down target after target – Arts Editor, New Statesman; "Raucous and incredibly funny" - Daily Telegraph; as "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" - Edinburgh’s Three Weeks) and by UK Comedy website Chortle as "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".

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 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)
