After expelling herself from The Royal Ballet School, pint-sized powerhouse Abigail Collins has become well known on the cabaret and festival circuit for her multi-tasking mix of comedy, character and circus skills. Self-describing as, "the body of an athlete, the mouth of Joan Rivers", Abigail's work is skilful, sassy and very, very silly. Personal, self-deprecating and irreverent, she is the one-woman entertainment rollercoaster whom Alan Davies calls, "absolutely brilliant". Her first novel, Everybody's Doing It, has just been released to rave reader reviews.
