Adrianne Chalepah

Adrianne Chalepah’s (she/her/they/them) early days in entertainment can be traced to Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. While in college, she honed skills in film production, journalism and stand-up comedy.

Upon graduating with honors, Chalepah joined the popular Native stand-up group, “49 Laughs Comedy,” and co-founded “Three Sisters Comedy.” Both groups gave her the opportunity to perform in nearly all 50 U.S. states and a couple of Canadian provinces.

2021 Yes and Laughter Lab Finalist, and recipient of the inaugural TimeWarner Media IAIA Creative Writing Scholarship, she holds an MFA in Creative Writing. Her published literature can be found in Betsy Bird’s “Funny Women.”

She was a featured comedian at CloudTop Comedy Festival and Traverse City Comedy Fest. You can also catch her on FX’s “Reservation Dogs,” Peacock’s “Rutherford Falls,” Netflix’s “Spirit Rangers,” and Showtime’s “The Curse.” In addition, Adrianne is a boarding school graduate, a member of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma, and a mother of four. She is also a proud Chalepah from the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma.
