Sophie Willan and Bobby Mair: Edinburgh Previews
DateWed 5 Apr
VenueJocks Cavern - Shambles Street
Sophie Willan: Preview
In 2015 powerhouse Sophie Willan’s refreshing comic style took her to several competition finals including the Magners New Comedian of the Year, where she was crowned the winner. Both brutally honest and gloriously unpredictable, Sophie’s stand up takes inspiration from her unusual life experiences, which makes for a razor sharp and totally authentic comic voice. A force to be reckoned with, she exudes confidence and northern charm.
In 2016 Sophie’s took her debut stand up show On Record, based on her experiences of growing up in and out of the care system, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A total sell out run and phenomenal critical acclaim followed securing Sophie’s place one of the most exciting rising stars in British Comedy.
Now she returns with a brand new show.
‘An exciting new force in British stand up’ ★★★★ London is Funny
‘Storming the stage in a blur of twerking, grooving and gyrating, Sophie Willan is an energetic ball of humour’ ★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
