In this exciting debut, Aboriginal comedian Stephanie Tisdell delves into issues of identity, what ‘sorry day’ really means from an Aboriginal perspective and discusses the merits of white guilt vs overt racism. Her mental health struggles culminate in an hilarious journey, ultimately leading somewhere inspirational. Including an abridged history lesson and policy overview through a comedy rap, Stephanie Tisdell hopes Identity Steft can be both a rip-roariously hilarious show with lessons interwoven throughout.

Deadly Funny National Winner 2014, Stephanie was named Funniest Aboriginal Woman in Australia. She then moved to Scotland and was runner-up in Hilarity Bites Best Newcomer and a semi-finalist in the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Fringe. Stephanie became a regular at the famous Stand Comedy Club in Scotland, and has supported the likes of Tom Stade, Danny Bhoy and Judith Lucy in her comedy career.
