All About Steph Tisdell
What's this gal all about?
As a passionate, creative professional, I believe in putting my skills and innovation at the forefront of my work for all my clients to experience. The end result? Coming up with ideas that really impress. Do you want to collaborate together on a project? Get in touch with me today to see what I can do for you.
Thank you for visiting my website. Feel free to browse for my bio, promotional pictures and writings of mine.
However, since you're here, I'd love to tell you a little about me. Not just my achievements or who I am on stage, but why I do what I do, and why I am passionate about being a part of your project, whatever form that takes.
At the time of writing this, I am 25 years old. My mental health is in a stable place for the first time in a long time. I attribute that to finding a platform where I can attempt to broaden minds and make people laugh while I do so.
I'm a proud Indigenous woman and where I used to fear tokenism may take me further than would otherwise be granted, I see now that as one of the few female Indigenous comedians in Australia (a sample that has some prestige thanks to those before me such as Shiralee Hood and Nakkiah Lui), I am in a unique position to encourage other Indigenous artists to come forward and showcase why we're the funniest race in the damn world.
My mission first and foremost is to empower those around me. I use comedy as my way to observe the world, finding the funny in the heartbreak is an important tool for anybody! After all, comedy is just tragedy plus time.
As a communication tool, few things come close. I believe everybody craves expression and it is my belief that encouraging expression in the workplace, at schools and in communities is paramount.
I love performing but also relish the opportunity to workshop comedy as a coping skill, an expression tool or even just a fun thing for your workplace, school or social circle. Furthermore, with a background in the social sciences, and a huge passion for Aboriginal rights and advocacy, I would be excited to talk about my experiences as an Ydinji woman and what my culture means to me.
I am an affable MC/host, and while I have some adult material, I am capable of performing for family-friendly events or corporates/galas, you name it.
I am primarily Brisbane-based, but own a car in good knick that allows me to travel with ease. (Please note, however, that if you're looking to book me for interstate gigs or events without much warning, my fees are higher to cover transportation, or I will require you to book this on my behalf.)
So, stranger, thank you for learning a little about me! I'm Steph Tisdell and I'm looking forward to meeting you!
