Comedian, film maker, and writer Adrianne Chalepah is a young Native American (Kiowa/Apache) female entertainer from Anadarko, Oklahoma. Raised in a predominantly Native American community, Chalepah experienced much hardship growing up facing poverty, alcoholism, and abuse. However, these hardships prepared her for a career in stand up comedy and motivational speaking.
She began her career in entertainment while attending Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado in 2004. In 2007, she and her college sweetheart welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world. And in 2009, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, Magna Cum Laude. In 2010, her comedy career took off when she teamed up with the popular Native American comedy troupe, 49 Laughs Comedy. Since then, she’s been featured in the Sept/Oct 2011 Issue of Native Peoples magazine as the leading Native female comedian in America. She’s also been a guest star on the late night television show The After After Party with host Steven Michael Quezada, and in 2012, she was honored to open up for the First Lady Michelle Obama at a campaign event in Colorado. In 2013, she made television history by becoming the first Native American bride to be featured on WeTv’s Bridezillas.
Adrianne is currently on tour with 49 Laughs Comedy and enjoys performing for communities throughout Indian Country.
