Synopsis

Danish comedian Sofie Hagen burst onto the UK stand-up scene in 2015 by taking the Best Newcomer Prize at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and she's gone on to establish herself as a sensitive and urgent voice for outsiders. Join her in Charlotte Square Gardens as she discusses body image and the notion that being fat is wrong in a society obsessed by shrinking – the topic of new book Happy Fat.
