Steph Tolev joins me on this minisode to talk about getting older (is this a theme?), not having an air conditioner and how doing a single episode of Video On Trial for Much Music obviously lead directly to her performing in front of an entire hockey arena opening up for the legendary Bill Burr.

She also offers a sneak preview of what she might have in store for the Canadian comedy scene as she takes aim at the scene with her keynote address.

Details on Steph’s shows:

Steph will be performing The Nasty Show running from July 18, 2023 to July 26, 2023 at Club Soda every night at 9:30 PM. She also has her solo show, Filth Queen, at Cafe Cleopatra on July 25 and 27, along with her podcast, Steph Infection: The Podcast on July 28 at the Double Tree Ovation.
