Steph Tolev stepped foot in LA with her brash, colorful, unapologetic, yet always playful stand-up had us doubled over laughing instantly. She’s one of Canada’s latest great comedy exports and this new hour I’m Not Well is the evidence to back that up.
Her gruff voice, spirited delivery, and unabashed honesty all get painted with her beautifully explicit, personal stories and observations. No matter how blue it gets, there is an undeniable charm to it all (even when she talks about bringing back creepy aunts). Even hearing some of these bits again, we still find ourselves with a wide smile and a big chuckle.
