Identity Steft

Presented by ALIST.COM.AU

In her exciting Brisbane Comedy Festival debut, Aboriginal comedian Steph 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 a hilarious journey, ultimately leading somewhere inspirational.

Including an abridged history lesson and policy overview through a comedy rap, Steph hopes Identity Steft can be both a rip-roariously hilarious show with lessons interwoven throughout.
