Saturday 29 June @ 8:30, Arts at the Old Fire Station

Bombastic black sheep whose favourite things include breaking hearts, taking names and telling jokes with the confidence of a cis straight middle-class white man.

As seen on Channel 4 (Riot Girls), BBC Three (Quickies) and Comedy Central. Host of the Wacky Racists Comedy Club.

Sophie Duker describes herself as a “sexy-cerebral comedy underdog” and is quickly establishing herself as one of the most exciting new acts on the circuit.

She is also a comedy writer whose funnies you might have heard in the following places: the British Broadcasting Co-orporation (Famlam, BBC2; The News Quiz, The Now Show, BBC Radio 4) and Cartoon Network (The Amazing World of Gumball).

Sophie is an alumna of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, has been shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award and is a previous finalist of the Funny Women Awards.

She founded and hosts MANIC PIXIE DREAM GIRLS, an international, intersectional feminist comedy show that appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 and 2017. Since January 2018 Sophie also hosts Wacky Racists, a ‘crazy stupid cool’ comedy cabaret gameshow, in a monthly residency at the Aces & Eights.
