Fabulous Abs (Abigoliah Schamaun)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

“People write reviews about me saying I’m funny, because, as you’ve probably noticed, I am funny…” drawls the Ohio-born stand-up, exhibiting that type of confidence that Americans just seem to be born with. However, this statement is not just arrogance – self-titled “chubbiest yoga teacher in America” Schamaun is not just funny, she’s hilarious. Her self-deprecating anecdotes are full of sensational smut, including various kiss-and-tell tales of “classy” threesomes, funny fellatio and the mystifying “folds” of the vagina. But don’t be mistaken in labelling her a nymphomaniac; her preferred term is “sexually compulsive”, and it’s a compulsion which, it seems, makes great comedy. A brilliant young comic; go see her now because it’s unlikely she’ll be doing this for free much longer.

Laughing Horse at The Counting House, 5 – 29 Aug (not 14), 8.30pm (9.30pm), free, fpp73.
