Abi Roberts Takes You Up The Aisle (Abi Roberts)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Any hen party visiting the Fringe should make this show a top priority. With wedding jokes going beyond your typical Wills&Kate humour, and a slew of personal anecdotes, Abi is funny and endearing, leaving out the real filth in favour of spot-on impersonations of Marge Simpson and Celine Dion. Clad in a wedding dress and sporting a puff of blonde hair, she belts out songs about her gay best friends and cyber love. The only single male in the audience, I was surprised to find myself enjoying it, whilst the large groups of women in the audience sipped white wine and sang along with smiles on their faces. I suspect that the future brides among them were having a particularly good time.

The Voodoo Rooms, 3 – 28 Aug (not 8, 22) 6.50pm (7.50pm), £7.00 – £10.00, fpp8.
