Abigoliah Schamaun: Post-Coital Confessions 4*** - One4Review
one4review | On 17, Aug 2015
The first time I saw Abigoliah Schamaun a year or two ago she was interspersing her comedy with some of her ‘previous life’ as a side-show performer.
There is no need for such gimmick now this ballsy New Yorker, currently London based is all comedy, telling it like it is especially about sex, and dispels the Hollywood myth with Sex is weird.
The crux of this hour is a post coital bet with her fella that she couldn’t stay off the booze for seven months while she trained for the Brighton marathon, a bet that had sexual forfeits for the looser.
Rom-coms, marathon training, sex, cuddling, 50 Shades all come under the microscope as she frankly discusses everything in her unique style. Ms Shamaun has another string to her bow, recordings of some confessions others of their post-coital exchanges. Some funny, some strange and some downright weird.
The show neatly ties together following the marathon. And we discover who won the bet! Or do we? To find out get there and be entertained for this main event comedian, definitely not a sideshow now.
