Fresh from supporting Doug Stanhope on his recent European tour, Dag Sørås is a big-brained, baby-faced comedy assassin with killer punchlines and a PhD in British and American history. Unfortunately this does not necessarily make him all that happy with his lot in life. But it does allow him to expertly take an audience to the very edge of the comedy precipice, and dare them to look way down - and let him show them around the parts he knows too well.

A skewed world-view has rarely seemed this smart and funny. Dag won the heart of both Stanhope and his crowds the last time he was over here, which means that you know the deal with one of Norway's biggest stars - this is dark and uncompromising comedy for those that don't care for being patronised or pandered to!

"Sørås is the master of the comedic simile, and deliciously appalling imagery...quite brilliant...laugh-out-loud funny" - The Scotsman

"I've been quoting Dag Sørås bits to anyone who will listen since working with him in London. If he didn't work in English as well, I’d suggest you learn Norwegian and then go see him. Just be sure he eats before you start feeding him drinks at 7 in the morning" - Doug Stanhope

"His grim nihilism brings a crucial sense of authenticity to his dark attitude...plenty of brutally funny lines which could make him a quite a force in sick comedy" - Steve Bennett, Chortle UK

"From the land that gave us trolls, Ibsen and A-ha comes Dag Sørås, recommended by no less than Doug Stanhope himself...Sørås is dark, but Doug's dead right" - Kate Copstick, The Scotsman

"Black is the colour, Dag Sørås is the name. To be found in bigger and bigger venues" - The List Magazine
