"a novel, gut-busting experience" - Native People's Magazine

Adrianne Chalepah is an American Indian (Kiowa/Apache) entertainer from Anadarko, Oklahoma. Growing up she experienced much hardship facing poverty, alcoholism, and abuse; however, she’s believes this prepared her for a career in stand up comedy and motivational speaking, which began while attending Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, where she made her stage debut and studied filmmaking. In 2009 she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts; and in 2010 her comedy career took off when she teamed up with the popular comedy troupe 49 Laughs Comedy. Since then, Chalepah’s performances have gained recognition, landing her features in magazines and on television. In 2012 she was honored to open up for the First Lady Michelle Obama at a campaign event. Passionate about indigenous/female empowerment, she formed the world's only all-female, all-Native American comedy group, Ladies of Native Comedy. Adrianne is currently a mother of three, wife, and businesswoman.
