We are always extremely proud and excited when our agents secure performing jobs (it’s only their dreams coming true!!); but we felt we had to dedicate an entire blog post to a certain rising star.  One of our super-talented agents Abigail Carter Simpson has been performing in the comedy ‘NewsRevue’ for the past couple of months at Edinburgh Fringe Festival…

"Guinness World Record-breaking, Fringe First-winning, Perrier finalist, news-based song and sketch show. In need of a cathartic dose of comic exasperation? Book now for the longest-running live comedy show in the world. Flawlessly delivered by a four-strong, tooth-achingly talented cast expertly accompanied by an on-stage musical director. All in the spirit of free expression with brand new material each year. Expect to hear about the demise of democracy, Brexit and, of course, the unavoidable Trump! ‘Comic genius – NewsRevue has the very useful capacity to turn our political anger into laughter... Sensational!' (Sky News)."

It’s impressive enough that the show was once again a success at the Fringe Festival, but Abigail has recently been nominated for the Rising Star award with the West End Wilma Awards 2017!

The ceremony will take place at the Prince of Wales Theatre on Friday 3rd November 2017.

We are thrilled for Abi – to be nominated in the same category as other fantastic rising west end stars is something to be proud of! We have everything crossed for her.
