One of British comedy’s most exciting talents (although she’s Danish), winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Best Newcomer Award, a cult podcaster, and now the author of the hugely successful book ‘Happy Fat’, Sofie Hagen returns to the Glasgow International Comedy Festival with a brand new show direct from the Edinburgh Fringe.
A show about the things you forget, the things you remember, and the things you wish you could forget. But also, there’s a bit about bums.
An evening of brilliant stand-up from a fast-rising star.
As seen and heard on BBC3, BBC1, RADIO 4, COMEDY CENTRAL, CHANNEL 4, TV2 ZULU
