Last year’s Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Newcomer winner Sofie Hagen will kick off her first ever nationwide tour of her hotly anticipated show, Shimmer Shatter at Newport Riverfront on October 22.
Following the success of her first show, Bubblewrap, where she enjoyed a total sell-out run and a plethora of the highest critical acclaim before bagging the Newcomer award at the Fringe, Sofie has now proven herself to be one of the strongest acts in the industry today.
She began her Guilty Feminist Podcast earlier this year with Deborah Frances-White, which has since reached over half a million downloads, and her four-week run of Bubblewrap went on to perform a sell-out run at London’s Soho Theatre.
Although Sofie’s assured, informed and deeply personal comedy has made her a star on stage in the UK, she has also branched out to television and radio, writing and performing for BBC 3’s Live From the BBC , BBC One’s The One Show, Comedy Central’s Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central , and Radio 4’s The Now Show .
