When someone decides to perform an hour show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival made up of self devised, self written and self performed material, it is a 12 month affair. Abbie Murphy went from decision to critically acclaimed comedy debut in just 6 gigs, in just 6 months! With no prior comedy experience - just raw talent, funny bones and one ballsy leap of faith…
In 2014 Abbie previewed her character show
‘Girl on Fire’ starring Abbie’s brainchild ‘Stephanie Vange’ at the Camden Solo Festival which saw her walk away with ‘Winner of Best Act.' In the following year, her second hour with Vange in 'Have A Word' Abbie was nominated Finalist of the Amused Moose Comedy Award 2015.
Abbie has been keeping busy with acting roles and writing in recent years, enjoying fantastic lead roles in some iconic productions such as; Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, Ricky Gervais's 'David Brent : Life On The Road', and also Catastrophe alongside Sharon Horgan. Abbie returns to this years Edinburgh Fringe with her Solo stand up hour 'Eat Sleep Shit Shag', and her new double act show 'Beg Borrow & Bitch'
