Tiff Stevenson Ed2016

From the feminist problems of female leaders, to a tongue in cheek discussion of how vanity is inescapable for women (it’s a manifestation of the culture we’re victims of, ya see), Tiff Stevenson possesses a rare level of insight. Effortlessly marrying the personal with the political by demonstrating their inextricable bond, a lot of Stevenson’s material is of the sort where you have to laugh, because otherwise, oh boy, would you cry. Her routine on the violent sexualisation of young girls is particularly poignant, and her discussion of our failure to hold the perpetrators of violence to account effortlessly shows that you really can talk about anything in comedy, because look, comedy can be used as a force for good.

Assembly Roxy, until 28 Aug.
