Tired of the conventions of both the left and right. KMT – acronym for the Caribbean Patois expression ‘kiss mi teeth’, a mouth gesture used to show annoyance – is a debut hour that finds a new way to talk about politics, class, race and identity at a time both ends of the political spectrum couldn’t be any further apart. Whether you agree or disagree, Athena’s thought-provoking observations will have you laughing out loud. “Authentic, beautifully pleasingly original comedy” ★★★★ – BroadwayBaby.co.uk “Has the crowd laughing throughout” ★★★★★ – ArtsAwardVoice.com
Critically acclaimed stand-up Tiff Stevenson, who you may know from Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and the BAFTA nominated People Just Do Nothing, or your dreams, she’s definitely been there. Some say she oscillates wildly between Sylvia Plath and Beyonce, like Belva Lockwood fused with your drunken aunt. Tiff says she’s very funny and a right old smarty-pants. She also says she’s very, very, very modest. “This is a heartfelt, hilarious, provocative, important hour of stand-up from one of the best in the business” ***** – Sunday Herald
