★★★★ Funny Women

 Following a critically-acclaimed debut at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe which established her as a must-see solo talent Stevie Martin will bring her first hour Stevie Martin: Vol.1 to Soho Theatre from 17th to 20th April 2019 at 8.30pm.

Stevie’s highly anticipated solo debut, Vol.1, sees her break away from sketch comedy group, Massive Dad, to go it alone for the first time with a brand new show which blends character and sketch comedy as Stevie tries to decide how best to start a show.

As one third of Massive Dad, Stevie received national critical acclaim for live shows Massive Dad and Massive Dad 2.0: Step Up 2 Massive Dad and Edinburgh 2019 also saw her appear in the hit shows Adam Riches is… Coach Coach 2 and Adam Riches is… The Lone Dueller. On television she has appeared in Damned (Channel 4), @Elevenish (ITV2), Quickies (BBC Three), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Two) and Brotherhood (Comedy Central), and has also been featured on BBC Radio 4’s Sketchorama. She is also an acclaimed writer, regularly contributing to the likes of The Guardian, Elle, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, Evening Standard, Vice, Shortlist, Stylist and Refinery 29. Stevie also co-hosts Nobody Panic podcast with fellow Massive Dad alumni Tessa Coates, which has grown a huge following as the pair offer their best adult life advice, whilst trying to work out how to be a functioning adult without screaming all the time. The Evening Standard called it “Witty, smart and oh-so-relatable. Subscribe to it right now” and it’s currently approaching a million downloads.
