Comedy KARLnival with Karl Spain and friends

As Karl is off on tour, the Róisín Dubh are delighted to have special guest MC Abigoliah Schamaun with us this Tuesday. a product of her New York stand up roots; frank, funny, and unapologetic.

Abigoliah first showed her face in the UK comedy scene when she became a finalist in the Funny Women Comedy Awards 2010 and has grown an Edinburgh Fringe following coming back yearly ever since. She moved to London in 2014 and has become a regular on the circuit. She was named “One to Watch” at Leicester Comedy Festival 2017 and The List named her “Top 5 Up and Coming Female Comedians”

As the only yoga instructor/comedian in comedy Abigoliah presents her always hilarious comedy with an open heart chakra. Bringing her audience into her world with the warmth and excitement like a friend who you haven’t seen in a while.

Despite making a later in life arrival to comedy than most, Paul Marsh has made up for his late start by making a massive impact on the Irish comedy scene. Paul wasted no time and rapidly racked up winners trophies in some of Ireland’s premier new comedy competitions, winning both the Tedfest Toilet Duck Award 2015 and the Capital Comedy Club Competition in Dublin.

Paul followed up his truly impressive start by going to support some of the biggest name in Irish comedy including Karl Spain, PJ Gallagher and Neil Delamere. He has now been performing regularly at all the Irish comedy clubs for over 6 years as well as being a Kilkenny Cats Laughs and Vodafone Comedy Carnival regular. Paul is now one of the most in demand acts in Ireland and increasingly in the UK.
