Abi Roberts: Fat Girl Dancing – a work in progress.
BBC Radio 4 regular Abi Roberts returns with a new work-in-progress show flicking a V-sign, the finger and showing her arse to the consensus.
She asks the big questions like, “is Adele a pub singer who got lucky?”, “why are there no fat newsreaders?”, “would an all-female version of the Shawshank Redemption be utter shit?” “is child-free some sort of dietary requirement?” and “can types of snoring be analysed according to how fucking annoying they are?”
Expect pomposity bubbles to be burst, sacred cows to be prodded and a least set piece show ending guaranteed to send you away feeling happy!

“Five glorious stars” – Edinburgh Festival Magazine
“Dangerous and hilarious and the very opposite of consensus comedy…(Roberts) has raw but relatable originality and a preternatural comfort with herself onstage and is she is unstoppable.” – New Statesman (Arts)
