Abigail Carter-Simpson is a multitalented comedian, singer, actress and presenter with a gift for making audiences feel at ease, her youthful appearance belying a performing career which is already over ten years in the making. She is currently appearing on Britain's Got Talent where she received a clean sweep of "Yes" from the panel.

From comedian to singer, actress to presenter, be it a comedy club, radio, live theatre, TV or on the big screen, Abi’s performing career spans over a decade. She trained at the Guildford School of Acting at 18 years old, gaining herself a BA (Hons) degree in Musical Theatre. She was named ‘One To Watch’ by The Stage after her graduation showcase in London.  

In her early twenties, Abi appeared in many off West-End productions and finally made her West End Debut in 2016 in a production which also took her on a Number 1 tour of the UK, to Hong Kong and to Singapore. 

Abi’s passion for comedy writing and performing began with - ‘Newsrevue’ – one of the world’s longest running comedy shows which has alumnus like Sarah Pascoe, Alistair McGowan and Bill Bailey. Many of her songs and parodies have been featured in the show incuding Newsrevue – EdFringe which ran at at The Pleasance Beyond for the full run of August 2017.

Abi has appeared on BBC1, ITV2 and SKY 1, where she played Cassandra Laggatt-Brown in Agatha Raisin & The Deadly Dance – appearing alongside Ashley Jensen, Matt Horne and Adam Garcia. You can still view this on catch up TV! 

During lockdown, Abi turned her comedy online – her social media has had a collective audience of over 200k views and she hosted her own radio show for Quarantine FM every Saturday morning for the best part of a year named ‘The Good News Day’ show. She also is a regular webinar host for companies who need a professional boost to their online meetings and seminars – a string to her bow which is a particular product of the covid era! 

Abi’s most recent project has been ‘All Mouth No Trousers’ where she is joined by her co-host to present a brand new comedy, chat and debate podcast which has been very well received in its early days.
