American comedian Abigoliah Schamaun takes her show ‘Legally Cheeky’ to the Women in Comedy Festival, before hosting an evening of stand-up comedy to raise funds for the National Network of Abortion Rights (NNAR).
Since the overturning of Roe vs Wade in the US, Ohio-born Schamaun wants to help the cause from abroad.
“As an American living abroad, sometimes I feel helpless when I see injustices back home. Like I’m too far away to help. That’s why I have chosen to do this fundraiser; it’s a way for me to help, even though I’m on another continent.”Abigoliah Schamaun
Schamaun has partnered with the NNAF and will be joined by some of her funniest peers for the evening. Guests include Nina Conti, Tiff Stevenson (Mock The Week), Sooz Kempner (Viral Twitter Sensation / The Now Show), Kemah Bob (Richard Osmond’s House of Games), Kerry Godliman (Afterlife) and Sikisa (Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club).
