News: Edinburgh Fringe Prize For Sophie Willan

Bolton comedian Sophie Willan has won the prestigious Herald Angel Award for her second stand up show Branded, currently at the Pleasance Courtyard at the Edinburgh Fringe.
 
Willan says: "I am so honoured to have won such a prestigious award.  My background as a theatre maker and now stand up comedian means I have quite a rebellious approach to my solo work. Apparently we're not supposed to mix the two genres - well why not I say?! I want to take risks, challenge social issues head on and give the audience a unique and personal experience - and this award is a wonderful validation of that rebellion!” 
 
Sophie Willan: Branded, Pleasance Courtyard until August 27. Tickets here.
