 Meanwhile, here's what the press have said about MUSICAL CID!

"I totally enjoyed being on Abi's MUSICAL CID. I wished we could have two hours! Insanely fun. Come and see this show!" - Al Murray, Creator of The Pub Landlord.

 

"...one of the Top 10 stand-ups to see, Abi Roberts is brilliant, funny and charming and her show (MUSICAL CID) is true genius. Juxtaposing big sing-alongs with comedians opening their hearts about their lives, this is a wonderfully unpredictable show. Take our word for it, anything can happen on MUSICAL CID!" GQ Magazine.

 

"I loved being a Guest on MUSICAL CID. I liked the sound of it before I did it. It's a comedy confessional show where Abi interviews guest comedians about their favourite songs and videos. It's shows like this that make the Festival such an exciting playground for comics. They offer a real chance for comedians to come off-script and let the comedy go to places they didn't expect". Jo Caulfield on MUSICAL CID.

 

***** "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 is a very funny way to spend an 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 laughter flowed freely throughout the hour and 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".  OneForReview (Edinburgh)

 

***** "This is a great concept for a show. It is hosted by Abi Roberts and features a different comedy guest every day. The format is pretty straightforward: the guest has chosen songs for different aspects of their life things like first kiss, a getting ready to go out song, funeral song etc. But the best part was the unrehearsed karaoke of Dead Ringer for Love with Abi as Meat Loaf and the guest as Cher. The audience loved it! Throughout the show the chat between host and guest was very funny indeed". Edinburgh Reporter
