Steve Timothy is a comedian, online sensation, soon to be Author, Rapper, Satirist, and other titles. He calls himself a chancer and professional Tom-fool. Whatever you want to call him, he’s making a mark.

We connected a couple of weeks back, shortly after his sell out show in Cork, to talk about his career, struggles with anxiety, dealing with trolls, disability, love for Everton Football Club, creativity, business, Conor McGregor, and of course the character he and his partner, Sinead, are best known for, Farmer Michael and Kathleen!

The Summary of our conversation includes:

  • Everton FC & support from the team players and raising the status of Everton in Ireland
  • Social media following
  • The realisation of selling out shows
  • Preparing content and dealing with fears and pre-show nerves
  • Goodwill from random people and begrudgery from Irish
  • Dealing with online Tolls & Death Threats
