This indigenous comedian who lives on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation in east-central Arizona, is bustin' loose by combining Native folk tales, contemporary humor with an Indian flair. The result is an eclectic vibrant vein of rich humor of the American Indian.
Andrew "Drew" Lacapa, is an Apache Hopi Tewa, who calls himself a lover and not a fighter. He believes his humor is not discriminatory in that everyone is worthy of being teased regardless of ethnicity or religion. Through out the years Drew has been performing coast to coast and said, "I am honored to have been able to share the stage with so many of America's most talented people."
Drew has broadened his stage act from hosting pageants and parades to performing stand-up comedy at casinos, schools and conventions throughout Indian country. "Every event is always exciting, whether it be a prestigious University or an event for children, they are all equally important." His act personifies the hardships of Native people in this century. Drew's physical antics complete with costumes create a unique and hilarious image of indigenous people in present America.
There has been much progress. Drew has a new CD entitled, "A One Night Stand In Paradise". It was created with longtime friend Knifewing Segura at Paradise Casino in Yuma, AZ. There are many stories to tell and many places to go. It is Drew Lacapa's desire that his native spun comedy will continue to tickle the funny bones of anyone who dares to journey with him through the ethnic commonalities, differences and his unique perspectives of the American Indian.
