Laugh-out loud funny ̣̣̣̣ The Telegraph
A sparky proposition The Independent

Following huge popularity, Best Newcomer Nominee 2019 Sophie Duker adds multiple extra shows at Soho Theatre with her hit debut show Venus. Building on the success of a sell-out, critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Sophie is set to perform at Soho Theatre from Tuesday 29th October – Saturday 2nd November, with the extended run from Monday 13th – Saturday 18th January, tickets can be found at sohotheatre.com.

Sophie Duker is your Venus, she’s your fire, your desire. Or is she? Silly, sexy, savage stand-up from a girl who’s definitely not a goddess. In her hotly anticipated full-fat woke debut hour Sophie takes her audience on an unconventional journey of self-discovery.

Sophie co-hosts Grown Up Land on BBC Radio 4 and is the creator and host of the Evening Standard recommended comedy night Wacky Racists. She has been featured on BBC Two’s Mock The Week and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Channel 4’s Riot Girls, E4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, while she’s previously enjoyed appearances on Comedy Central and BBC Three.
