Award-winning stand-up, cult podcaster and acclaimed author Sofie Hagen brings her brand new show The Bumswing to The Dukes on March 7.

Fresh from the success of her 2019 semi-memoir Happy Fat, Sofie’s first appearance at the Lancaster venue sees the comedian reflecting on her unreliable memory.

Ranging from her supposed strawberry allergy to a sex weekend in Swansea, Sofie weaves witty observations and hilarious anecdotes with issues like mental health to explore what our brain chooses to recollect.

As well as her stand-up, the Chortle and Edinburgh Comedy award-winner has appeared on Comedy Store on Comedy Central, Live at the BBC and Roast Battle.

She has also hosted and created a number of successful and influential podcasts, including Comedians Telling Stuff, Made of Human and the smash-hit The Guilty Feminist, which she co-created with Deborah Frances-White.

The Bumswing is recommended for anyone aged 14 plus and tickets are priced £15. For more information and to book, ring The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or visit

Other comedians appearing during The Dukes spring season are: Flo and Joan (February 20, sold out), Lou Sanders (February 21), Lucy Beaumont (February 28), Daliso Chaponda (March 14), John Kearns (March 19), Tony Law (March 27), Jen Brister (May 15) and Josie Long (June 13).
