The Chickasaw Cultural Center is proud to present the comedic talents of Adrianne Chalepah. 

Adrianne Chalepah is an American Indian (Kiowa/Apache) entertainer from Anadarko, Oklahoma. While attending college, she made her stage debut and studied journalism, film-making, and American Indian Studies. In 2010 her comedy career took off when she teamed up with the popular comedy troupe "49 Laughs Comedy."

Chalepah's performances continue to gain recognition, landing her features in magazines and on television. In 2012, she was honored to open for First Lady Michelle Obama. In 2014, she founded the "Ladies of Native Comedy" supergroup. Chalepah has performed alongside comedy giants such as Margaret Cho, Dane Cook, the late Ralphie May, and Jarrod Carmichael at the Hollywood Improv. In 2017 her writing was published in two highly-praised books, "Funny Girl"  and "#NotYourPrincess: Voices of Native American Women."
