Steph Tisdell Baby Beryl

Award-winning comedian Steph Tisdell (The Project, ABC, triple j) returns to Melbourne International Comedy Festival with her brand new show Baby Beryl.

Have you ever met a baby named Beryl in the last decade? Because Steph sure hasn’t!

Names come in and out of fashion and Steph thinks that's pretty weird. Would your life be different if you had a nickname? Even naming structures vary from country to country. So, really, what's in a name? Steph reckons we should find out. And that's why you're invited to come on stage for an interview in this interactive and surreal show where stand-up meets chat show!

Join the rising star of Australian comedy Steph Tisdell as she examines baby naming trends, ponders some of life's biggest mysteries, dissects the human condition and tries to find a baby Beryl in an hilarious new hour of comedy.

Steph is a proud Indigenous woman and is quickly making a name for herself as one of Australia’s funniest Aboriginal comedians, putting her in a unique position to encourage other Aboriginal artists to come forward and showcase why they’re the funniest race in the world. Steph recently performed with the Aboriginal Comedy All Stars in Edinburgh and London to sold out audiences and rave reviews. She is a regular on The Project, co-hosted triple j during Naidoc week with David Woodhead, her 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala clip went viral and she was handpicked by Nazeem Hussain to appear on the Stand Up for Christchurch benefit, which aired on Channel 10. Steph’s comedy is vulnerable, real and insightful. Her witty observations challenge stereotypes in non-offensive and hilarious ways.

'Steph Tisdell is a glorious powerhouse of First Nations funny.' The Scotsman

'Unapologetically cheeking and brimming with zest and original material. ★★★★★' Ed Fest Magazine

'She’s got an ease with an audience and a joke strike rate that many comedians with far more experience would envy... warmly funny, immediately relatable, fast on her feet and generous with her audience. ★★★★' Time Out
