Sofie Hagen – Dead Baby Frog Tour

Sofie Hagen – Dead Baby Frog

The Edinburgh Comedy Award winner hits the road in October

Following a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Sofie Hagen will be embarking on a 30 plus date tour this autumn with her new show Dead Baby Frog.

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.

The tour went on sale on Tuesday 25th April, and was launched at 12 noon with a marathon Facebook Live chat between Sofie and her comedy hero, Mark Watson (they talked until they dropped) from Sofie’s Facebook page.

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), The Nightly Show (ITV), 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).

Since taking over our TV screens isn’t enough, Sofie has taken over the airwaves as well, appearing on The Museum of Curiosity, The Now Show, Fresh from the Fringe, The Verb (all BBC Radio 4), Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra) and Lols Lounge on BBC R1. She is also the former host of The Guilty Feminist podcast and is currently the creator and host of Made of Human.

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.

“Compelling, beautifully constructed… Hagen is a lovable guide through a tale that digs deep, but with a very light touch” **** The Guardian

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

“There are few comedians who make a room as warm as Sofie Hagen does… the Danish comic has impeccable control of her craft” **** The Times

“A dark story told lightly and honestly, and with plenty of wry wit… filthy and graphic, but somehow polite” **** Time Out
