A comedy showcase of Native comedians at the famous UCB LA Theatre.
Every year on Columbus Day / Indigenous Peoples' Day, the ghost of Christopher Columbus rises from his grave to terrorize Native American people and the day after Columbus Day it's our responsibility to scare him away with the things he fears most, laughter and jokes from Native performers!
