David Trent tour dates
Laughing Horse New Act Of The Year winner. Winner 2014 Chortle Awards Best Newcomer.
'Warm, accessible but in no way bland, Hagen delighted the crowd with personal tales and observations. Her skill becomes all the more apparent when looking at her silences as well as her writing, her timing is spot-on and pauses, facial expressions and knowing nods and smiles all combine to make an act who is destined to make a name for herself' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Hagen is hilarious' (The Skinny)
'Hagen's act sharply pokes fun at British words and phrases and she's not afraid switch to bleaker, more contentious subject matter' (http://TimeOut.co.uk).
