My grant application was, unfortunately, unsuccessful. While I am seeking corporate sponsorship, I ask you - the proverbial you - to help me take my show to the Festivals. This is not only an investment in the show, or me, this is an investment in helping me get to a platform where an exchange of knowledge can occur. Months of research have gone into the show to make sure it is smart, funny and appropriate.
I am looking to raise funds to cover accommodation costs first and foremost; flights and spending will be supplemented by work, however it is the outlay of a lump sum of money that has me turning to you.
If we hit this target, or any portion of it, I would be grateful beyond measure. This is a passion project, spurned by a steadily growing understanding of what it means to be Indigenous in today's society.
If you cannot give funds yourself, I understand. If you know of any corporate sponsors that may get behind me on this, well that would be just as swell!
See bio below:
Stephanie Tisdell is an Indigenous Australian comedienne from Brisbane. In her first year of stand-up, she won the coveted Deadly Funny Comedy Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Soon after, she moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to perform in a different environment. In that time she was a finalist in the YesBar New Comedian of the Year Competition, a runner-up in the Hilarity Bites Newcomer Competition and a semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny; she also had a successful solo show in the Fringe Festival, titled ‘Boob-a-rang.’ Over the 2 year stint, Stephanie was considered a real up-and-comer in the Scottish Comedy scene and performed regularly with The Stand Comedy Club.
She was the opening act for ‘Scottish Comedian of the Year’ in the Adelaide Fringe Festival and performed in mixed bills including Set List and Best of the Best.
She has been described as "feircely funny and talented," and her "up-front comedy style" (deadly vibe, 2014) has been a winner on stage. With a natural presence and energy on stage, she can command the attention of any room - intimate or large-scale.
‘Identity Steft’ looks at the fragility of tokenism, how using statistics to replace real-life experience as insight is hugely flawed, and how, in the right light, even the darkest clouds have a silver lining. Proud Indigenous woman, Steph, will teach you how to best channel your white guilt!
