Sofie Hagen is unquestionably one of the most talked-about comics of the moment. A modern legend in her native Denmark, she burst onto the British scene by winning Best Newcomer at Edinburgh Festival 2015. Her 2016 follow-up, ‘Shimmer Shatter’, was a second total sell-out, which followed again with another sellout show in 2017; ‘Dead Baby Frog’. She’s recently been seen on ‘The Nightly Show’ and Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Battle’. She’s spoken to millions as host of her successful ‘Made of Human’ podcast, and appeared on The One Show, The Now Show and Live From The BBC.

She’s just released her first book Happy Fat and returned from a sold out Edinburgh Run with her new show The Bumswing which is she is now touring across the UK and Europe. Her loves include watching musical theatre and Danish crime TV shows.
