TIFF STEVENSON – SOLO SHOW – Thursday, 13th July


PICTURED: Tiff Stevenson

TIFF STEVENSON – Choice Bits of “Sexy Brain”  

Critically-acclaimed stand up, writer and actor Tiff Stevenson (Mock the Week, People Just Do Nothing, The Office, Game Face, ABC’s The Weekly) brings a solo show to Balham Comedy Festival for the first time. We invite you to spend an hour with a woman and her self-diagnosed ‘Sexy Brain’… a study in trying to see all sides of every argument and driving yourself slowly mad in the process. She’s going to throw in a little new material too. 

‘Sexy Brain’ was one of Edinburgh Festival Fringe’s Best Reviewed shows of 2022. Her previous 5* rated shows (Bombshell, Mad Man, Mother) have all been listed in ‘British Comedy Guide’ Edinburgh Fringe Top 20 best shows.

Her thought provoking and engaging style consistently see Tiff play to packed audiences, consistently garnering ten 4 and 5 stars reviews for her shows. Her weekly live show Old Rope has enjoyed a succession of sell-out runs at the Edinburgh festival. Old Rope showcases new material from up-and coming as well as established headline acts and plays to capacity crowds every Monday night in London. 

Tiff’s thought provoking comedy and satire engages audiences worldwide from London, Sydney, Montreal, New York, Shanghai and beyond. She can boast a long list of TV and radio credits, and she also writes regularly for the Metro newspaper.

“Heartfelt, hilarious, provocative, important … one of the best in the business.” – THE SUNDAY HERALD

“Punchy and political but in the best, most human sort of way … charming but hard-hitting and  radical.” – THE MIRROR
