Hosted by Abigoliah Schamaun! Abigoliah is a product of her New York stand up roots; frank, funny, and unapologetic. She first showed her face in the UK comedy scene when she became a finalist in the Funny Women Comedy Awards 2010 and has grown a 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"

Tina Friml appeared in this year’s Just For Laughs Festival as a selected performer in the acclaimed New Faces series. She has also performed in this year's Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, Indiana and has appeared in the 2018 NBC Comedy Spotlight Series at Boston's Women in Comedy Festival. In her home state, she was crowned the 2018 winner of ‘Vermont’s Funniest Comedian’ at the Vermont Comedy Club and has since begun infiltrating stages in Boston, New York, Montreal, and London. Using animated optimism on her own physical disability, yet fearless honesty about the social assumptions that come with living with cerebral palsy, Tina befriends audiences of all sorts with her eccentric style, off-beat mind, and unexpected philosophy acquired through her unique circumstances.
