Tiff Stevenson – Optimist 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 05, Aug 2014
Tiff Stevenson has been a presence on the comedy scene for a while now with the occasional foray onto TV too being a finalist in TVs ‘Show Me the Funny ‘ a year or two ago and sure knows how to work a too.
In what hasn’t been the best year for her, she has drawn strength from within and vodka and this hour’s show based on and around optimism and the hope for action in addressing the NHS demise is the fare on offer.
This isn’t an introspective hour though, she has an abundance of stories to entertain and there are laughs a plenty peppering the performance, yet with the light and shade of the piece she reveals both the fun side of her character and ventures to darker side of her too. There is definitely more to her than a smiley fun comedian.
Tiff has always been a performer I have admired and this show doesn’t change my mind one iota and her aim to campaign for the NHS can only be admired, even if she is partly responsible for Farage!!
