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.
Matt Stellingwerf has come an impressively long way in a short amount of time. He is the newest rising star on the UK comedy scene, having dominated the comedy stages of New Zealand for the last five years. Highly regarded by his peers, Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, including Best Newcomer, the much coveted Billy T Award, and been nominated for several others.
A Hamilton-born and Wanganui-raised farmer’s son, Matt trained as a criminologist, he is also an award-winning bar fly, a genuinely lovely guy, and a man full of contradictions.
He expertly brings these contradictions to the stage, with his typical low-key style and confidence, finding the humour in topics as diverse as love, mental illness, sex, drugs, and a crazy interview he once conducted with a serial killer on Death Row…
When this erudite satire-superstar gets onto the stage, the acceleration from zero to a hundred jokes is measured in seconds. Matt Stellingwerf’s deftly crafted jokes display a man full of seriously good comedic talent.
Mike started performing stand-up comedy in July 2011. He reached the semi-finals of both So You Think You’re Funnyin 2012 and The Leicester Square New Comedian of theYear Competition in 2013.
In August 2013, Mike teamed up with Joe Foster and Adam Race to present JAM Comedy, a triple-header stand-up show at the Edinburgh Fringe. The show had a limited run but was nevertheless a great success.
