Abigoliah Schamaun – Subtle (Jaggy)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2013

With a little side-show trickery and a lot of joking around, Abigiolah Schamaun is a comedy whirlwind. The no-holds-barred New York comic starts with a fiery (no, really) entrance and somehow keeps her infectious energy up through the whole show. Including constant audience interaction and freaky tricks, this is more more than just the usual comedian standing at a microphone. Unapologetically upfront, her shocking escapades and tales of Scottish adventures are guaranteed to draw shrieks of laughter from the whole audience. Schamaun knows how to handle taboo subjects; she is an open, honest and warm comedian who is totally in tune with her crowd. However, a word of warning: if you’re squeamish, don’t sit up front.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 8.55pm.
