Sofie Hagen: Optimistically Working On A New Show, In Case The World Doesn't End

I'm back! After taking a year off from comedy for personal reasons (global pandemic, leaving the house was illegal, government allowing culture to die completely) I am back with an attempt to write a new show. Why not take a break from dry heaving due to the immense anxiety you suffer from, partly caused by the world threatening to cave in on itself and kill us all, and come enjoy some C O M E D Y  F U N T I M E? Why not get your mind off things like 'how will I pay my rent without government help' and 'is this cough going to be my last breath' and instead watch a confused comedian try to remember stand-up again, after not having seen another human being for 18 months? I'm double-vaxxxed, so you can totally come lick my face, if I'm not funny enough. I'm too fat for all my clothes, so I will be wearing pyjamas and I might have to bring my dog. SEE YOU SOON.
