"Abi Roberts presents her incredible stand-up show, Anglichanka (the Russian word for Englishwoman) with unstoppable charisma, dominating the stage.

With true talent, Roberts merges her tales with her boisterous, laugh-out-loud humour that never once fails to gain laughs from the audience.... one-of-a-kind stand-up."

"...it is clear we are in for a high-energy, entertaining performance.....she is hilarious, thought-provoking and a joy to watch....during the show, it becomes clear that wonderful comedic writing is not the only treat in store.... She also demonstrates how comedy can be used to great effect ' Roberts's biting commentary is so subtly embedded in her script that it is never forced, but none the less challenging....intelligent, self-effacing and deeply personal comedy: absolutely not to be missed."

"...huge stage presence, commanding the room from the moment she steps on stage. A wonderful blend of funny stories and audience interaction...A fantastic storyteller who has led a fascinating life, you'll leave Roberts' risqu comedy having not only laughed, but also gained insight. Definitely a show for those looking for a scoop of wanderlust to go with their stand-up."
