Sofie Hagen

Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…

Sofie Hagen: Shimmer Shatter | Liquid Room Annexe | 7.50pm (pictured)
Having won much acclaim and the Edinburgh Comedy Awards’ newcomer prize last year – oh, and a ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award too – Sofie Hagen is back at the Free Fringe with a new show. And the 5/5 review for ‘Shimmer Shatter’ in the ThreeWeeks Week One edition (out tomorrow) notes how “she weaves this year’s stories expertly in and out of each other with immense narrative talent, every arc and every joke crafted to perfection”. Go see, though get there early if you want to get in.

Ghost Quartet | Summerhall | 9.00pm
Another 5/5 show that appears in our Week One edition, our reviewer notes that this show “feels like a dream and a nightmare: overwhelmingly beautiful, complex, soulful and gripping”. Described as a “haunted song cycle about love, death, and whisky”, ‘Ghost Quartet’ is highly recommended.

Pierre Novellie Is Cool Peter | Pleasance Courtyard | 9.45pm
In another of the 5/5 reviews to be found in our Week One issue, our reviewer says of Pierre Novellie: “I am almost embarrassed by the amount of involuntary noise that came out of my face during this hysterically funny show – a genuinely hilarious comedian, Novellie seems pretty cool to me”. Cool and recommended.
