Reliably informed

Hag is the latest tour from comedian Sophie Duker, whose acclaim is rising fast across the comedy circuit as she makes regular appearances on TV shows including across Mock The Week, Cats Do Countdown, Hypothetical and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order. She’s also known as the winner of Taskmaster series 13, but Hag will see her back where she thrives – on stage, up close and personal. 

Her huge tour takes in several North East venues, kicking off on Saturday 18th February at Gala Theatre in Durham. Hag is a show of identity and honesty; as a Black queer woman, the show is an exploration of liberation, sex and discovering your place. The nonchalant comedian has demonstrated her candour around each of her hot topics, allowing nothing to slow down her tangents as she skilfully deconstructs the myths surrounding each, referring to Hag as “the big, queer, unhinged, sexy, chaotic show I always wanted to do”.

As whimsical and silly as it is political and didactic, Hag is a show that highlights Duker at her most spiky and raucous, as it allows her to gleefully not care any more. 

Sophie Duker performs Hag at Gala Theatre in Durham on Saturday 18th February, returning to the region at The Stand, Newcastle on Saturday 1st, The Forum Northallerton on Wednesday 19th and The Witham, Barnard Castle on Thursday 20th April
