PBJ Showcase featuring Tiff Stevenson, Mawaan Rizwan & UK Comedy Duo Egg

Tickets (Free): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pbj-showcase-featuring-tiff-stevenson-mawaan-rizwan-uk-comedy-duo-egg-tickets-54186915523

Tiff Stevenson is an awarding winning stand-up comedian, actor and writer, whose thought provoking comedy and satire has played to audiences worldwide from London, Sydney, Montreal, New York, Shanghai and beyond. Earlier this year, Tiff was asked to perform at the prestigious Oslo Freedom Forum, where she addressed important issues such as reproductive rights, feminism and the global political climate.

As an actress she has appeared in ground breaking shows such as The Office, White Gold, & and as a series regular on hit shows such as BAFTA winning People Just Do Nothing (BBC & Netflix) & Game Face (E4/Hulu). On her role in People Just Do Nothing the Independent newspaper said ‘Character actor and stand-up comedian Tiff Stevenson has given the show multiple new layers’.

She has taken 5 solo stand up shows to the Edinburgh Festival. Her 2017 Edinburgh Fringe show Bombshell received a slew of 4 and 5 star reviews making it officially one of the top 20 best reviewed shows that year. She has just finished touring Bombshell nationwide.

As a stand up and radio/TV personality Tiff is a regular on British shows such as Drunk History, Mock The Week , 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Apprentice -You’re Fired, The Blame Game & This Week. Tiff is currently recording a new Podcast Series for Lush Cosmetics titled ‘A Tiny Revolution’, in which she discusses comedy as a social tool with various guest comedians. 

Tiff has also been working with The Economist to create new content for their platform & Gemma Arterton’s production company, Rebel Park Productions. The films will be released later this year.

Mawaan Rizwan is an actor, writer and comedian. He starred in six part ITV drama Next of Kin as well as the BBC’s BAFTA-winning Murdered By My Father. He's written for the New York Times and his comedy videos on YouTube have amassed over 18 million views. Mawaan has also presented several documentaries for BBC/Netflix, How Gay Is Pakistan? & Getting High For God. He is currently writing on a Netflix comedy drama series. 

As a comedian, Mawaan’s unique hybrid of confessional stand-up and skilful physicality has taken the comedy world by storm.

He supported Simon Amstell (Carnage) on tour in 2018 and his Edinburgh 2018 show Juice was a critical and commercial success, performing to sell-out audiences and receiving a plethora of 4 and 5 star reviews for his ‘thirst-quenching joy-ride of a stand up set’.

EGG, the UK’s answer to Broad City’s Ilana and Abbi are a new and exciting comedy double act comprising of Anna Leong Brophy and Emily Lloyd-Saini.

After several years improvising together in award-winning improv troupe ‘BattleActs!’, they made the leap into sketch comedy together as EGG.

Their first live show, ‘EGG: Static’ was nominated for Best Show at the Funny Women Awards as part of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

They made their official debut with Richard Pictures in 2018, which enjoyed sold out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and transfers to London’s Soho Theatre in Spring 2019.

A little more info: The Hippodrome is an open company jam led by John Gilkey. We invite everyone from all the performing Hippo ensembles as well as students to come and perform. We’re never quite sure who will get up, but we look to mix people who might not have worked with each other before, try new things, and show what we’re up to. We want to challenge what we do and see all the styles this thing can take.

The Pillowman: Stage Reading

The Pillowman: Stage Reading

Come join us for an afternoon read through of Martin McDonagh’s dark play “The Pillowman”. Set in an un-named totalitarian state, a writer is kidnapped by the police and interrogated. We discover he is being questioned about a series of horrific crimes committed in the town he lives in..crimes that bare a similarity to the stories he writes. A dark comedy in the darkest sense, youll laugh at things you know you shouldnt..and probably at things you never thought you would. A powerful tale about the power of storytelling, the Artists' desire to create, abuse of power and control of the media..not that we are into themes. Or have a specific theme going on here. But in an oblique way, maybe it does have those themes.

The goal of this reading is to have our voices heard by a live audience, to get feedback, as well as give our audience the chance to hear a story they'll never forget. We would like to one day perform this as a full production outside of los angeles, and we greatly appreciate your attendance and witnessing this process! No charge, as this is a public reading of something we are workshopping. Yet if you liked what you heard, please contribute to our cause with a donation!

Cast:
Katurian: Bradley James Holzer
Tupolski: Will Kleist
Ariel: Aryiel Hartman
Michal: Michael Soldati
Stage Directions: Jessica Rothert

$10 suggested donation.

Delicious food and drinks available at the cafe that you can enjoy during the show. Bring your friends!!

"In a comedy scene oversaturated with irony and cynicism, improv master Philip Markle invites you to indulge in blissful inanity at this absolutely batshit variety hour, featuring life-affirming wisdom from Markle, visceral humor from a crazed coterie of avant-garde performers and spectacular dance breaks."
 - Time Out NY

Bolting through the audience and bounding on to the stage with the conviction of a tent revival evangelist, Philip Markle quickly wins over the audience with his enthusiasm. Mr. Markle brilliantly balances the glittery outrageousness of his performance style with amazing storytelling skill. Coming out of his shell with vim and vigor, Markle brings home the message of “Be yourself, love yourself” at the heart of Sparkle Hour! ” - NYTheatre.com
