STAND-UP COMEDIAN TIFF STEVENSON EMBARKS ON UK TOUR WITH ‘SEVEN’  

Tiff Stevenson PRESS CENTRE

“Defiant and thoughtful” The Times 

Building on the success of a critically-acclaimed, month-long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August with her seventh stand-up show Seven, TIFF STEVENSON is set to embark on a UK tour from 30th September 2016 to 11th March 2017. Inspired by a gig she did in DAVID LYNCH’S nightclub in Paris last year, just one month before the Bataclan attacks, TIFF explores our need to make huge worldwide impactful events about us, delving into morality, modernity, vanity, mental health, DONALD TRUMP, film reboots & clouds.

A well-known face on television screens, TIFF plays series regular Tanya in BBC3’s cult mockumentary People Just Do Nothing (which returned in 2016 for two more series) and has recently made multiple appearances on Mock The Week (BBC Two), performed on Comedy Central’s Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, been a guest on Dave’s Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, recounted a story on Comedy Central’s Drunk History and was the UK correspondent on for the new Australian satirical programme The Weekly With Charlie Pickering (ABC). Other credits include The Office (BBC Two), The Apprentice: You’re Fired (BBC Two), Only Joking (Sky), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Two), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Celebrity Deal or No Deal (Channel 4) and Safeword (ITV2

On the Radio, TIFF has been a guest on Front Row (BBC Radio 4) and MacCaulay & Co (BBC Radio Scotland) and makes regular appearances on the Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra), 7 Day Saturday & Sunday with Al Murray (BBC Radio 5 Live) and Breaking the News and The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected (BBC Radio Scotland).

Well established at Edinburgh festival, Seven is the seventh solo show TIFF has performed at the Fringe, following on from her previous successes Uncomfortably Numb, Cavewoman, Dictators, Along Came a Spider, Optimist and Mad Man which have all been met rave reviews. In 2012 Uncomfortably Numb was awarded the Mervyn Stutter’s Spirit of the Fringe award and has since inspired TIFF to make a documentary exploring plastic surgery, ageing and our perceptions of women’s faces further, which is currently in production.

TIFF also writes opinion pieces for the Metro newspaper and hosts Old Rope, a weekly live show, which has enjoyed a succession of sell-out runs at Edinburgh festival. Old Rope showcases new material from established headline acts and plays to a full house every Monday night in London. She has recently supported ED BYRNE on his national tour.
