ED2012 Comedy Review: Abigoliah Schamaun – Girl Going To Hell

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

Abigoliah Schamaun is going to hell and taking everyone with her. In an incredibly frank show, Schamaun is big, brassy and brilliantly shocking. The small venue space combined with her infectious enthusiasm immediately warmed the audience, and quickly removed the fear of the dreaded ‘audience participation’; people who were lining the walls of the half empty room were soon in easy conversation with her. She chirpily works through material bordering on the outrageous, but for all her stage presence it doesn’t hide the fact that the jokes are not as laugh-out-loud funny as they should be. Still, I defy you not to have a good time with Abigoliah Schamaun, even if the show is more fun than it is funny.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, 2-27 Aug, 8.30pm.
