The Edinburgh Previews Part IV

  • Brandling Villa Haddricks Mill Road Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE3 1QL United Kingdom (map)

The fourth in our season of Edinburgh Previews, we have the very popular Kai Humphries & Abi Roberts.

Kai is a happy-go-lucky, supremely funny and truly loveable Geordie comedian and compere, his infectious enthusiasm and high-octane delivery of genuinely hilarious and delightfully optimistic material has seen him rapidly shooting up the professional comedy ranks.

In May 2010 he recorded his TV debut for Comedy Central’s “The Comedy Store” alongside some of the biggest names in comedy, but barely 18 moths after his very first time ever on stage.

A self-confessed lad’s lad, his disarmingly friendly delivery holds a few surprises – not least his ability to supplement his cheeky banter with a contrasting intelligence in his material. Kai’s mind holds a truly unique and vivid imagination.

Kai is genuinely excited and passionate to share his stories and jokes with his audience and does this in such an engaging and intimate way that it could easily be just a group of mates having a good night out. He is a natural entertainer and judging by the numerous gigs all over the world, Kai is set to have a very successful comedy career.

Abi will be showcasing her show "ANGLICHANKA" which has earned her acclaim so far on her tour...

"Roberts burst on to the stage like a breath of fresh air and is comedy gold..having seen a lot of stand-up over the years, I can say with absolute confidence that I will make sure I see her again now that I have witnessed first-hand how absolutely hilarious she is....belly achingly funny; she is clever, witty, different and moreish. Totally addictive comedy"  - Swindon Evening Advertiser

"ANGLICHANKA...a riotous trip down memory lane as she recounts her experiences as a teenage student. It’s an action-packed story.... Roberts is a feisty and ebullient performer and the story never flags in a roller-coaster ride of comedic skill that has its audience hooting along in English and in Russian right through to the suitably over-the-top Slavonic musical finale. A smart, funny, and highly original show ★★★★"- Theatre Bath Magazine
