Abi Roberts’ Musical CID **** - One4Review
one4review | On 01, Aug 2014
Abi Roberts has a load of things going for her, a bubbly, infectious personality, a smiley demeanour good comedy skills and the concept of a show that although not deep or ground-breaking is a very funny way to spend a lunch hour.
She bounds onto the stage, warms up the audience with some gentle getting to know you style of humour and explains that each day a different guest comedian will have the contents of their iPod investigated while in conversation with our amiable host. The show I saw had Stephen Bailey as the lucky lad to admit to his choice of favourite songs for numerous scenarios and he was on fire. I don’t think Abi had to work too hard to generate the laughter that flowed freely throughout the hour, there was a feeling of watching two mates chatting over a drink, except the audience was privy to their conversations.
Although the show ran for its full hour it seemed to me like it had barely started when it was over, always a good sign in my opinion.
So for a different way to start the Fringe day, and learn some musical secrets along the way and even a touch of karaoke why not give it a try?
