Look no further for a night full of laughs with 2014 Deadly Funny National Grand Final winner Steph Tisdell performing at the upcoming Milbi Gala Ball.

While being funny and helping people have a chuckle might come naturally, Steph has revealed that, more than anything, she simply wants to spread love at her events.

Steph said she was looking forward to returning to the Bundaberg Region, having visited many times before, and admitted she had quite a soft spot for the town.

“I love everything about Bundaberg, I really love regional towns as I wouldn’t say I’m much of a city person,” Steph said.

“From previous performances in Bundaberg, I know that I will be performing in front of a really fun crowd which is very exciting.

“I just love getting out and performing for people which has been a bit different this year with COVID.”

While comedy is at the heart of what she does, Steph said heart was also at the centre of her comedy routine and at events like the Milbi Gala Ball she wanted to make sure everyone felt it.

“I love loving my audience, that is my little principal, simply to give love to the audience,” she said.

“Hopefully I will be funny, but more so I want people to feel loved, that is all I want to spread.

“You can probably expect to feel like you are getting a big hug from the stage on the night.”

A luminescent presence on stage, her warmth and wit has been a hit with audiences ever since she won the Deadly Funny National Grand Final in 2014.

The annual national comedy competition aims to scout Australia’s best First Nations comedians and story tellers.

Steph's award-winning shows sell out wherever she performs and she is fast becoming a ubiquitous presence on mainstream television.

As a Ydinji woman she loves to share her experiences and what her culture means to her and hopes that her visibility will empower other Aboriginal artists to come forward and to showcase why they’re the funniest race in the world.
