The Los Angeles Public Library’s Will & Ariel Durant Branch will host a virtual discussion on Native American comedy with bestselling author and comedy historian Kliph Nesteroff and actor and writer Tai Leclaire on Thursday, June 10, at 2 p.m., via Zoom.
“We invite the public to join us in this event with Nesteroff, the preeminent historian and scholar of American comedy, and Leclaire, an up-and-coming Native American comedian,” said John Frank, the branch’s senior librarian. “This discussion on the history and future of Native Americans in stand-up comedy is bound to be entertaining and provocative.”
Nesteroff is the author of the critically acclaimed book “The Comedians: Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels and the History of American Comedy,” and “We Had a Real Estate Problem.” Leclaire is a Native American writer, actor and performer on NBC Peacock’s “Rutherford Falls.” He was a house performer at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and has also entertained at festivals around the country.
