I caught up with Rob from Abandoman after what has been their coming of age year. From big support slots to a well received Edinburgh Fringe show, Moonrock Boombox. They are at the stage of major breakthrough that must get them excited as every new day starts and opportunities arise.
I don't know why there aren't as many female as male comedians but I am pretty sure that it's not because the person booking the acts decided not to let women perform. I could be wrong. Perhaps the idea that women comedians aren't funny is a lot more pervasive than I think.
