Sophie Willan

In 2015, Sophie Willan took her debut stand-up comedy hour On Record, based on her experiences of growing up in and out of the Care system, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A sell out run and critical acclaim followed, securing Sophie’s place as one of the most exciting rising stars in British Comedy.

‘An exceptional new talent’ (The Herald ★★★★★)

‘An exciting new force in British comedy’ (London Is Funny ★★★★)

‘Wise, confessional and bloody funny’ (The List ★★★★)

In 2016 Sophie turned her focus to a group of Care Leavers in the North West of England. Together they have created a tremendously vibrant anthology inspired by their experiences and fired by their imaginations.
Sophie’s work with Care Leavers across Greater Manchester has become a national talking point, establishing Sophie as one of the UK’s leading ambassadors for Homeless and Care Experienced Young People.
