Don't miss Identity Steft
Popping her Brisbane Comedy Festival cherry, Steph Tisdell, an Aboriginal comedian, is due to take the Powerhouse crowd by storm in 'Identify Steft'. Steph will take you on a hilarious journey sharing issues of identity, what 'sorry day' really means from an Aboriginal perspective and discusses the merits of white guilt vs overt racism with clever wittiness. Steph delivers the inside scoop on life as an outsider, a discussion about her heritage and her mental health struggles which culminate in a hilarious and inspirational journey that includes an abridged history lesson and policy overview through rap.
Steph is said to have a magnetic personality and quirky stage presence that skips between gleefully playful to biting political satire, Steph's comedy is vulnerable, real and insightful.
Steph took out 'show of the week' at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and was also nominated as Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. So get set for an educational, inspirational and fun night out supporting women in comedy. If you want a sneak peek before the night, you can catch some of Steph's work here.
You can catch Identity Steft in the Graffiti Room at the Brisbane Powerhouse from Tuesday 12th until Sunday 17th March 2019. The show kicks off at 7.15pm (6.15pm on Sunday) with tickets starting at just $20. Now remember, the show starts at 7.15pm so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to grab a park, maybe even a drink and a bite to eat so you won't be late. You don't want to be that person that arrives after the show starts, awkwardly making people stand whilst you whisper 'excuse me, sorry, excuse me ahh hem' because, of course, your seats are smack bang in the middle of the row. And naturally, you don't want to be the person the comedian on stage sets his/her eyes on and makes reference to the fact you're late – nobody wants to be the butt of that joke! So why not get there a little earlier and enjoy all that QLD's home of performing arts has to offer.
