A much-needed hour of stand-up which delivers big laughs alongside powerful messages, skilfully and with apparent ease.

For her latest hour Mother, Tiff Stevenson talks about being working class, wanting women to make their own choices and what it's like being a stepmother in a blended family. Which is refreshing because unless you're Queen Grimhilde from Snow White or Janine Butcher from EastEnders, stepmothers aren't that well represented and certainly not spoken about much in comedy.
