‘A diamond in the rough and a refreshing break from the norm’| The I Paper

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.
