Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand-up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she 'faked it' as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on it as a career.
She quit her day job working with male ex convicts after Stewart Lee plucked her from obscurity and put her on The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central). Since then she has performed stand up on a number of TV shows including 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular (BBC3), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and The One Show (BBC1).
Based in London, she has had two sold out critically acclaimed runs at the Fringe with her solo shows “People Are Idiots” (2015) and “Male Comedienne” (2016).
'A great comic sensibility, with moments of sparkling verve' (The Guardian)
'Crackles with fire, has beautiful timing, perfectly pitched delivery and great gags to boot... has the air about her of a woman going places' (The Scotsman).

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'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).
