Comedian and podcaster Sofie Hagen has announced her new stand-up tour Dead baby Frog. The 2015 winner of Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer will kick off the 30 date tour in October, after a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August.
Sofie’s tour organisers say: “Sofie’s back and this time she’s angry. Or rather, 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 has been vocal about making sure her shows are always a safe space, saying on her tour page: “if you somehow feel inhibited by your anxiety and there IS something I can do, like, letting you in before the crowd, saving a specific seat for you or letting you know about the show in advance, you can email me at email@example.com and we will try and sort something out.” She also insists all venues that she tours have gender neutral toilets and disabled toilets. So there are very few excuses not to see this very funny comedian.
The Danish comedian is promoting the tour today (Tuesday 25th April) with a marathon Facebook Live chat with Mark Watson. They plan to talk “until they drop”. Watch them talk here!
Dead Baby Frog is Sofie’s third full show, her successful show Shimmer Shatter is available to buy here!
