Sofie Hagen

Dead Baby Frog

The award-winning comedian Sofie Hagen is ready to make Denmark laugh again! This time she’ll be touring Esbjerg, Copenhagen, Odense, Aarhus and Aalborg with her new show ‘Dead Baby Frog’.

Sofie’s back and this time she’s angry. Well, she’s talking about anger since she has been left incapable of feeling, well, most things, thanks to her psychopathic grandfather. It’s time to talk about his funeral, even though he’s not dead yet… Is that right? Sofie turns to the parable of boiling frog for answers. Sofie Hagen is a Danish stand-up comedian but this is written in English as her show will be in English. If you understand this, you will understand the show. Really, there is no reason not to get a ticket. Sofie has graced TV screens across the world, including on the Zulu Comedy Gala (Kanal 7), Sjov Med Sex (TV2 Zulu), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), The One Show (BBC) and Alan Davies: Apres Ski (BBC2) and The Morning After (NBC/USA/UK). She has also written and performed in Outsiders (Channel 4), Live from the BBC (BBC Three), Best of the Fest (BBC) and BBC Ouch Storytelling Live (BBC).

Sofie’s mantelpiece is packed full with awards galore having won Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award’s Best Newcomer (2015). Chortle’s Best Newcomer (2014) and Laughing Horse’s New Act of the Year (2013). She was also runner up in the Leicester Square New Comedian 2013 and a finalist in Funny Women in 2012.

This show will follow up on Sofie´s multi award-winning show ‘Shimmer Shatter’ from 2017: A successful Danish debut tour with no less than two sold out shows in Copenhagen and performances in selected cities throughout Denmark.

★★★★ The Guardian

“A charming show, if littered with unexpected filth
★★★★ Sunday Times
