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 TIFF 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, film reboots & clouds.
TIFF is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer. A well-known face on television screens, TIFF has appeared multiple times on Mock The Week (BBC Two) along with appearances on Comedy Central at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and was the UK correspondent for hit Australian show The Weekly with Charlie Pickering (ABC).
TIFF also appeared on Drunk History (Comedy Central) and has a regular role on BBC Three’s hit mockumentary People Just Do Nothing which returned in 2016 with two more series. TIFF’S TV credits also include Safeword (ITV2), 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). As an actor, TIFF’S credits include The Office (BBC Two).
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.
