Fighting back against body shaming and fatphobia

Copenhagen-born Sofie Hagen was the winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award best newcomer in 2015 and the Chortle Best Newcomer Award in 2014.

Sofie has always been fat. But after years of struggling with her body image and subjecting herself to countless diets, she started to worry less about fad diets and impossible beauty ideals and began to challenge the origins of these deep-seated aspirations. Her debut book, Happy Fat, is out in April, and is part-memoir, part-social commentary, and part impassioned plea for us to fight back and reframe our toxic relationships with our bodies. 

Full Day Passes, giving access to any of the Chortle Comedy Book Festival sessions are also available. (Entry to individual sessions subject to room capacity.)
