Sofie Hagen

Hardened comedy fans will be most excited about the Middle Eastern debut of Sofie Hagen, one of the hottest rising stars of the European stand-up circuit. The Danish-born, London-based trailblazer was signalled out with the ultimate career-making honour, when she was named Best Newcomer at last year’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards, following debut Fringe solo show Bubblewrap. Since then, demand for this assured, informed and deeply personal comic has rocketed to the moon and back. “Hilarious… clever, touching and funny,” praised The Mirror in a five-star review, while the snobby Sunday Times warned: “A charming show, if littered with unexpected filth.”
