Not so! Abigoliah does her own damn tech. It's an interesting development in comedy, now that computers are tiny laptops and most people can negotiate connecting said laptop to a projector stand up has now gone multimedia. When I went to see Miranda Hart she showed a YouTube clip of a dog humping a woman. Abigoliah had an entire power point. A power point that tracked her childhood.
Abigoliah talked about her father and her childhood to an audience of around 10 (I spotted stand up comedian Jen Brister in the audience, I don't know if that's a good endorsement or not, I'm just sayin') with absolutely no qualms about the numbers.
This new show is currently a work in progress. Abigoliah really is...working on it.
This new show is currently a work in progress. Abigoliah really is...working on it. But it already works well. There is some reflection dress size and pop and rock music's fondness for the curvier girl. An awkward childhood in which, aged 8, Abigoliah's parents questioned her intellectual abilities is also good comedy fodder, at one photo of the comic as a young girl I laughed to a point that might have been cruel. However she also manages to discuss the death of a parent, cancer and promiscuity and skilfully mine the same amount of comedy from these more difficult subjects.
Oh yeah, and while we're here, let's talk about the name, it's origins are Gaelic. Or Hebrew. You decide for yourself. Just never call her Abby.
Catch Abigoliah on 7th May at the Caroline of Brunswick at 19:45!
