Tiffany Stevenson – Dictators

****

4 Stars

Before I first saw Tiffany Stevenson some eighteen months ago, I had been informed by some in the know that she was a talent to watch out for, and having seen her perform a few times since I can wholeheartedly agree.

Dictators is the title for this years Edinburgh show where she elects her ‘Top Five’  dictators of recent times and outlines their virtues and otherwise that led her to her conclusions.

Opening banter with the audience and the selection of the crowds General for the day preceded the body of performance her top dictators, with pictures them and another of her ‘carbon offset’, her cat Bumble. There is no way I am going to reveal the list, but fair to say there are some usual suspects and maybe a wild-card or two thrown in for good company.

For the remainder of her time, Tiffany outlines some of the case for the prosecution, a little maybe for the defence, all interspersed with a few details of her life and family.

She is an engaging comic I find, with bags of stage presence and a good line of material and gags, easy to see why quite a number in the comedy world advised me to see her back then.

The space she is playing is not the largest on the Fringe, but tickets are selling well, so let me spread the word and then go and see for yourselves.
