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?
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?
