This is an in-person event

"I know a lot of you white people have never seen an Indian do stand-up comedy before,” joked Charlie Hill (Oneida) on “The Richard Pryor Show” in 1977. “Like, for so long you probably thought that Indians never had a sense of humor. We never thought you were too funny either.” Native comedy has been on the rise recently with the TV shows “Reservation Dogs” and “Rutherford Falls”. Join a lineup of long-time Native stand-up comedians including “The Naughty Rez Dog,” comedian and horse Mugger Gilbert Brown, writer and actor for "Rutherford Falls" Taietsarón:sere, along with comedic veterans Jim Ruel and Sheila Chalakee for a night of bare-knuckled humor and dry wit that transcends stereotypes. Note: No spiritual guidance will be offered at this show. Please leave sage sticks at home." (Promo Copy)
