Gathering of Nations Powwow 2014

We just got back from Albuquerque, New Mexico., and here are some of my favorite photos from our weekend in the land of enchantment!

I got to host Stage 49 again and this year I did it in drag, wow, it was so much fun!  The people at the Gathering really liked my outfit, I really think they liked my wigs and boots!  #sashayyoucanstay

I did get to see some pretty great acts on Stage 49, these guys below are known as Mike Bone, they're a rap duo from Oklahoma City.

I do love my Native men, next up were the Chief Rockers, an eclectic group of breakers and rappers from Albuquerque.  This is Chris, heres one of the founding members from the group, check them out on Facebook, they're really good!

Every year @ Gathering the festival features the comedy duo stylings of James & Ernie! These two are a National Treasure among the Nations, they're really funny and are always good for a laugh!

When I got home, I immediately emailed the Stage 49 production team and thanked them for having me back and said, "theres no way I'll ever be able to top this weekend, it was so much fun" !!

Mid April Blog

Hello folks.

Today, I got some good news, the director of my movie, "All The Others Were Practice" , sent out an email for a special cast & crew screening next month.  I guess what was taking so long for the film to get finished was making sure the audio was sounding good and any color corrections.

As excited as I am about the movie finally being here, I'm totally going to pass on the special screening and will wait until opening night at a film festival somewhere.

Call me old fashioned but I want to experience seeing this movie for the first time with a live audience.

Also, to make my first movie premiere feel extra special, I asked one of my straight comic friends to be my date and he said yes.  Well, really he said if he's available he'd do it so thats good enough for me.

And depending on how the premiere goes, I just might give him some afterwards.

Lets see, what else.

One week from today, I'll be headed to Albuquerque, New Mexico., for the Gathering of Nations Powwow 2014.  This year I'm going to be hosting Stage 49 and I'm really looking forward to it.  This is my 2nd time hosting for them, I did their event back in 2011.

This next time around I'm going to be dragging out!  What?! Yup, I'm so excited to be dressing up because I know its going to be a lot of fun and besides, who doesn't love a good dragqueen?!

Heres a little taste of what they'll be getting next week!

Bronson Koenig - Ho Chunk

2014 has definitely been year of the Native Athlete.

Native America's most prominent athlete - Shoni Schimmel, may have just finished out her last game for Lousiville but the pride & spirit of Native America lives on with Bronson Koenig and the University of Wisconsin.  Koenig a 6'3 freshman guard sensation hailing from La Crosse, WI.  Bronson is currently playing in the NCAA DIV 1 Final Four !!

Check out the tweet from Shoni Schimmel!

Good luck tonight to

Go Badgers!

I'm such a gay sell out !!

I don't care if eating Fruit Loops makes me a gay sell out because I fuckin love this cereal, they could've called this cereal little rainbow colored assholes and I would still eat.  And yeah, that was a pun.

Great L.A. Trip

Just got home from my last L.A. trip. 

This time around I got booked for Comedy Time, which is a web comedy channel on youtube, its the same comedy group that made Comedian Angelah Johnson famous for her nail salon video. 

The booker for this show asked me to be clean so thats what I gave them and it went great!

As far as I know, the video will be released in 90 days so I'm eagerly waiting to see how the editors chop it up!

Otherwise after getting home, I'm super exhausted.  From the moment we touched down in L.A., I was hitting any open mic that I could to stay loose.  I actually prefer working out at comedy open mics because theres nothing like performing with other people who have the same ambition & drive as you do, that and because I didn't get booked at any other showcase.

Okie Doke, stay blessed everyone!
