Thanks heaps for working with our students last week. The kids got a lot out of it. Your friendly, down-to-earth approach worked really well. My 10 Drama class were very inspired and performed their ideas developed in the workshop for the whole class the next day and very excited by it all. The kids had a lot of fun and laughs. The challenge of creating a comic scene from your suggested words, hearing about your own experiences and work, went down well.

Steph is an absolute legend, she stepped up as a keynote for our mental health conference and completely held the room with her speech, everyone was cry-laughing so much, she is pretty damn hilarious. Her ability to be so real, so human an accessible brings a layer of extraordinary richness to her amazing humour and wit. She was totally professional, generous and authentic and we’d have her back in a heartbeat.

This show carefully balances the hard truths Indigenous Australians face with tongue-in-cheek jokes and hilarious quips…hilarious and informative.
An impressive grip of complicated material…Tisdell will become one of those must-book favourites in years to come.
Tisdell’s stand-up is equal parts informative and unequivocally funny…an act that is both sincere and sincerely hilarious.
Riotous, audacious and incredibly smart…Tisdell’s message of empathy over apathy is one that we all need to hear.
