Sofie Hagan Review
Review by Jo Forrest.

SOFIE Hagan is a Danish comedian as was winner if the Edinburgh's Comedy award for 2015 Best Newcomer and she was also the winner of Chortles Best Newcomer of 2014 and it hard not to see why.

Sofie played to a packed audience in the basement of Liverpool's atmospheric Slaughter House, a small and very intimate venue and a great setting. Everyone was personally greeted by Sofie as they entered and the evening starts with her stood on the small stage, hiding behind a clipboard and introducing herself and then bursting out from behind it as though she hadn't been there the whole time.

The show begins with Sofie saying she had actually played at Liverpool once before, she had a 20 minute slot, travelled all the way from London where she now lives, for 6 hours only to have the act before her run over by 15 minutes and she was left with a 4 minutes slot.

She compares the politeness of playing in Newport to the more aggressive Leamington Spa where the people there were more likely to say:- "you're dam right you're in Leamington Spa."  The evening processes with Sofie going between her life as a child and now, she talks about her estranged father, who left when she was a child, came back and then left again.

Listening to Sofie is like listening to your best friend tell stories of growing up, of marrying a stick of wood with her grandma on the phone reading from the Bible. Her love life and how difficult it is being rejected, her best friend who "could not possible be gay" who then went on to meet and fall in love with another woman. Sofie explains her hatred of crowds of people at parties / nightclubs and how she prefers to hide in the toilets and having 4 walls around her is like having 4 hugs, but just not be people.

The evening was a huge hit with the audience, she kept everyone entertained with stories that ultimately had an undertone of sadness. Definitely one to watch in my opinion, she is incredibly funny and approximately 75 minutes she had everyone totally engaged before personally thanking each and everyone for coming as they left.
