Sonia Aste

Spanish Comedian living in the UK.

Sonia is a witty Spanish comedian who is not afraid to poke fun at other cultures, especially her own. Her comedy is full of sparkling passion and she makes everyone part of the show.

Her friendly energetic presence makes the audience trust her and go with her on her jokes. As comfortable in a pub full of regulars as in a corporate auditorium, she is an ideal MC and a great act all round.

Sonia has performed in clubs such as The Comedy Café, Downstairs at the King’s Head, Bearcat, Laughing Horse, Out of Bounds Comedy, Laughing Cows, Clapham Comedy and regularly with Mirth control.

QUOTES:
'Sonia has great confidence on stage and is able to connect very well with the audience, she is upbeat, animated and funny, a good combination'  Geoff Whiting (Mirth Control)

'Immediately demanded the audience's attention with her flamenco look and sound, but this was no flimsy gimmick. Her material was smart and fun, and her take on the Brits allowed us to enjoy a good laugh at ourselves.' Kerry Leigh and Hazel O'Keefe from Laughing Cows Comedy / Dulcet Sounds

‘Charming and very funny. The audience loved her.’ Phil Zimmerman (No. 5 Club)
"Professional, intelligent and flexible with her delivery, Sonia has a natural stage presence and a wondrously accented persona that ensures complete mastery of her audience.  A pleasure to work with and a must for any line-up." (Dan Kington, Danny's Comedy Club)

"Maria Queen of Flamenco is a fantastic act. Full of energy, very well observed and as comfortable in front of a pub full of hipsters as she is in a theatre full of private school parents." Russ Powell (Russ Powell Comedy)

‘Very strong stage presence, great audience rapport and confidence.’ Isobel Matheson (Funny Women)

‘Sonia was fantastic compering our night. All our nights are good but last night was one of the really great ones. I loved the way she ran the evening and kept up such brilliant energy for the entire evening.’ Pete Gee (Havana Laughs)
‘One of the few performers who cheers me up the second I see her. When I turn up to a show and she’s there I feel warmth and happiness. She goes on bold adventures and can light up any room.” Steve Roe, (Hoopla)

‘Radiant, delightful and extremely funny.’ Martin Besserman (Monkey Business Comedy)

Corporate:

Her act is different, fresh, natural and funnily outrageous! It brought loads of laughter and her original improvise interaction with the audience was fantastic!  It takes a lot of creativity, observation and talent to make a group of bankers laugh so hard.’  A. Joli (Standard Chartered Bank)

‘Sonia's is brilliant. I thoroughly recommend anyone who wants to enjoy an evening of comedy to try her out. She is certainly going places; she is too good not to.’ Gloria Morrison - Campaign Co-ordinator JENGbA

"From the moment she stormed on stage she hit us with a blend of fierce Spanish pride, dubious morality, sharp satire, and cracking delivery that made her the runaway hit of the night. This act is delightfully funny in a way that reminds you what good comedy really is. Bravo!" Roger Bennett, Organizer, IT Comedy Bytes 2014, "The Stand-Up Event in the IT Calendar")

“Genuinely hilarious combination of a workshy ingrate and a Modigliani painting, with perfectly tailored audience participation.” Lucy Carter (SS CEO) CEO Sound Seekers
