Tiff Stevenson by Steve Ullathorne

This is a tricky question, it's like filling out online dating application. I can't tell you what other people see in me apart from my no bullsh*t, take no prisoners, hilarious observations on modern life, politics, ethics and Leonardo Di Caprio's knob . Oh and I have amazing shoe game.

Which comedians have been your biggest influence since you decide this was your path?

The female titans who went before me who deserve a place in the hall of fame - Rivers, Wood, Aherne, Diller

A lot of love for US comics particularly Rich Hall…most of the reason I got good at comedy was watching him at my gig every week.

What random things make you laugh in everyday life?

Michael Gove's attempts at being a human being & Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" cap which was probably made in a Chinese sweatshop

Please tell us about your best and worst moment on stage so far.

Worst moment was when a fully naked man got up on stage as some bizarre sexually threatening form of heckle. Best moment was probably at Reading festival last year, it's 4,000 people and always rocking

Do you still get nervous when you do a gig?

Sometimes, normally the bigger the gig the cooler I am…I sometimes get oddly nervous in small rooms

Why is Edinburgh Fringe Festival such a great platform for comedians?

It's like the open in golf, you don't have to wait to be invited…you just gate crash. Which means anything goes, anything can happen and when that is the case cool, interesting people want to participate whether they are performing or in the audience. It has a great vibe. Also as a comic you get to stretch your legs over an hour - you can say so much more

Who are you looking forward to seeing as an audience member?

I'll go check out visiting US comics Louis CK, Michelle Wolf & Mary Lynn Raskjub who is so funny in Always Sunny so I can't wait to see her live stuff. Comics who have been previewing material at Old Rope like - James Acaster, Nish Kumar, Lou Sanders, Katherine Ryan, Fin Taylor , Alice Fraser, Andy Zaltzman & Daphne

What is your advice to aspiring comedians?

Do the stuff that you find funny and interesting, not stuff that you think is trendy. Watch as much live comedy as you can preferably at my gig OLD ROPE.

What is next for you?

More People Just Do Nothing in autumn, 2 films, some Mock The Week…oh and the small matter of a tour. I'm also writing a sitcom with the brilliant Rich Hall so we are waiting to hear on our pilot….keep your fingers crossed. Then I plan to have a holiday at some point in 2018.

Tiff Stevenson's new stand up show 'Seven' will be at the Assembly Roxy Upstairs for the month of August for tickets go to
