ABIGOLIAH SCHAMAUN: DO YOU KNOW WHO I THINK I AM?!
Sunday 13th October | Doors 5:30pm | Show 6:30pm
She’s a myriad of paradoxes.
A hardcore yoga bunny with surprisingly squishy thighs.
A boring heteronormative disguised as a luscious lady lover.
She grew up in the conservative Midwest of America to become an unabashedly liberal UK-based comic.
Nothing is what it seems. Especially Abigoliah Schamaun.
Join the critically acclaimed stand-up as she takes to the road for her debut nationwide tour, on the back of a sell out Edinburgh Festival season and appearances on the top rated The Guilty Feminist and Global Pillage podcasts.
