Philly Fringe Vital Stats: Tiffany Brooke Dow

Posted September 13th, 2010

In this series, get to know your 2010 Philly Fringe artists a little bit better. We’re not done yet! Biff! Bang! Pow!

Name: Tiffany Brooke Dow.

Where do you live now? Rittenhouse Square.

Where were you born? Chicago.

What’s your show title?
Bang! Zoom! Pow! A Story of Broken Borders

What was the first thing you stole?
Probably someone’s parking spot.

What’s your favorite alcoholic beverage?
Cosmo—Grey Goose!

What’s your favorite Philly intersection?
18th and Walnut . . . bustling with Center City happenings and you have the beautiful park.

What’s the worst thing you ever did for money?
Pharma phone sales. Yeah, I lasted 3 days.

Who’s your favorite Phillies player?
Being a Chicago native, I’m more of a White Sox fan. But gotta love the Phils—Jayson Werth rings my bell.

Do you have relatives more famous than you?
My dad was a sports broadcaster back in the 1970s and 1980s.

Do you own a gun? If so, have you fired it in anger?
No. When I’m angry I hit the gym or better yet a dance club to get funkay. It always puts me back together.

Do you have pets?
I do not. But one day I will have a couple poodles for sure! They are the best dogs. And they don’t shed or smell. They potty train like THAT! [snaps] And I’d never give them that obnoxious bouffant hairdo. Keep it cute with a puppy cut.

If you weren’t an artist, what would your job be?
I’d be a therapist, hands down. Perception is amazing and people are so complicated. Relationships are the most important thing in life.

What’s the most disgusting thing you’ve ever seen on SEPTA?

Bang! Zoom! Pow! A Story of Broken Borders is up for one night only at Studio 34, 4522 Baltimore Avenue, West Philadelphia. 8:00 pm, $10. For details and tickets, click here.
