Biography

Danish comedian and fat acceptance campaigner based in London, England, who has toured with comedy shows and hosted a number of podcasts. She is the author of the 2019 book, Happy Fat: Taking Up Space in a World That Wants to Shrink You.

Hagen moved to London in September 2012 to perform regular comedy. In 2013, Time Out identified Hagen as "One to Watch". Hagen won the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year the same year; the first woman to win the award.

In August 2015, Hagen took her debut hour show, Bubblewrap, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show was favourably received, with 5-star reviews. In November, Virago Press published her essay in the collection I Call Myself a Feminist.

In July 2016, Hagen appeared in the Channel 4 miniseries Outsiders. She took her second solo show, Shimmer Shatter, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

Hagen espouses the fat acceptance movement. In January 2018, she wrote an article in The Guardian calling for people to stop dieting, labelling it as "boring", "triggering", and "neither feminist – nor healthy". In February 2018, Hagen gained attention for calling for Cancer Research UK to pull their campaign that highlights obesity as the second most common cause of cancer. After directing angry comments towards the cancer charity on Twitter, she described the campaign as "fat shaming" and said that there was proof that dieting is more dangerous than obesity. Cancer Research UK reiterated scientific evidence behind their campaign.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her on Twitter, "Yesterday a pharmacist asked what my birth year was and I said ‘1988’ and she put down ‘1998’ and didn’t even flinch so in A WAY, I’m 20 years old now" [1], "It’s one day before my 30th birthday" (posted 9 Nov 2018) [2], "Good to be home in the comforting warmth of my childhood home. Come see my show in Copenhagen" [3], "Scorpio, Scorpio, Sag." [4] (in response to the question "You’re a fucking DOUBLE Scorpio‽" [5]). A birth time of 10 AM is speculative.
