Up for a Laugh! Q & A with Steff Todd
Mon, July 8, 2019 by
On Saturday 13th July 2019 local lass Steff Todd returned to her hometown Settle to preview her Edinburgh Fringe show: Reality Check. Audiences can expect to belly laugh at Steff’s stand-up comedy and spot-on impressions.
We caught up with Steff for a quick chat ahead of this Saturday’s show.
You grew up in Settle and now you’re returning with your show. How does being a Yorkshire lass inform your comedy?
I’ve grown up in Settle since I was 10 and I’m super proud of being from the Yorkshire Dales. I talk about it loads on stage.
Do you still feel a strong connection with Settle and with Yorkshire?
Definitely, I live in London now but I try come up and see my family as much as I can.
When did you start stand-up and impressions?
I’ve been performing on the comedy circuit for 3 years, a little while before that I started uploading impression videos online. I finally got the bottle to do it live!
As a comedian, do you consider yourself a storyteller?
Nah, I started out doing one-liners. I’ve slowly developed into a more conversational style but the show is very gag-packed!
You were named one of the 8 most exciting debuts at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe! Tell us a bit about your fringe show.
I was buzzing about being on that list! (thank you I Talk Telly!) My debut hour is described as hilarious stand-up, razor-sharp one-liners and amazing celebrity impressions. So excited!
What can audience members expect coming to Reality Check at The Joinery?
Loads of impressions and jokes. Lets have a good laugh!
And finally, who is your favourite islander this year?!
Ah I’m totally hooked on this years Love Island! I like Amber, Maura and Anton! I can’t choose between…
