Abby Rolling

Abby Rolling hire practicing criminal Defence Legal Aid speaker book at agent Great British Speakers

Abby Rolling

Abby Rolling is a practicing criminal defence solicitor, writer and comedian. Her comedy draws on her nearly 30 years in the legal field, largely spent as a Legal Aid solicitor in Magistrates’ courts.

In August 2022, Abby made her Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut, performing her sell-out hour-long stand up comedy and storytelling show Shit Lawyer.

Refreshingly irreverent and uncompromising Abby lifts the lid on our criminal justice system in terminal decline.

Abby was recently selected by screenwriter Chris Lang to develop a new legal drama as part of the ScreenSkills and Dancing Ledge Productions TV Mentoring Scheme, now with World Productions, West End, London.

Abby is a standup performer, public speaker and writer of real wit and originality, tackling some difficult material with her laser insight and bleak northern humour.  Once described, ‘like the Secret Barrister, but with gags and a face’, Abby skillfully draws out the comi-tragic realities of her job.

For the third consecutive year, Abby returns to the Edinburgh Festival in 2024.

Contact Great British Speakers today to book Criminal Defence Lawyer, comedian and writer Abby Rolling for your next event.

Her dedicated work in the justice system has given her a unique perspective on life at the sharpest and toughest edges of British society. She writes with great heart, passion and eloquence. She creates characters and stories that can touch your soul as well as making you rage about the world we live in. I can highly recommend Abigail and her work.”
