Sofie Hagen announces Bubblewrap show & Happy Fat book tour

Sofie Hagen will be touring her hit show Bubblewrap at selected venues across the UK, alongside her first book Happy Fat, from 26th April to 9th June 2019. This will be the first time the show has toured the UK, and follows her recent sell-out shows Dead Baby Frog and Shimmer ShatterBubblewrap won her the Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer Award in 2015, catapulting her onto the British comedy scene.

Bubblewrap, a show about how Sofie learned to love her body (interspersed with erotic Westlife fanfiction and stories about one-night-stands, a psych ward and car chases), is currently confirmed to play at 12 venues around the country. Audiences will also have the chance to hear her read from her new book Happy Fat, a manifesto for happiness and fat liberation, followed by a Q&A with Sofie.

Unquestionably one of the most talked-about comics of the moment, Sofie just completed filming for her own Comedy Central series, Sofie’s Sex Stories, looking at the sex lives of fellow comedians. She’s also recently been seen on The Nightly Show (ITV) and Roast Battle (Comedy Central). She hosts the hugely successful Made of Human podcast, co-hosts the brand new live comedy podcast Secret Dinosaur Cult, and was one of the co-founders of The Guilty Feminist podcast.

Sofie Hagen said: “I’m very excited to take Bubblewrap and Happy Fat on tour. Bubblewrap is a stand-up show about how I first learned to love my body – Happy Fat is my first ever book and it’s about why it’s fucking okay to be fat and it’s where I’m at right now with fat positivity. The tour will be a mix of stand-up show, book reading and Q&A, a wonderfully balanced mix of funny, emotional, authentic and silly. Oh, and I’ll bring a bunch of books as well.”
