Welcome! I love to write, and I love sharing what I write with my readers. I vary my style as much as I can-posting events, creative non-fiction, prose and poetry and the occasional video. Enjoy!

Monday February 17, 2014-8pm-10pm-The Shittiest Warrior: The Ryan McMahon Ontario Tour Comes to Toronto @ the Central, 603 Markham Street, Toronto, ON


Ryan McMahon has hit the road to tour his newest album The Shittiest Warrior! Touted as the Native George Carlin, comedian Ryan McMahon returns to Toronto on Monday, February 17 at The Central for an unapologetic but brutally honest standup comedy show about the relationship between Indian Country and the mainstream.

Ryan McMahon is one of North America’s fastest rising comedians. He has appeared at the Just For Laughs Festival and Winnipeg Comedy Festival and was the first Native comedian to ever record a full-length comedy special for CBC TV. His most recent album spent 6 months at the top of the iTunes comedy charts and he just finished a live recording at CBC Radio 1 to a sold-out audience in Edmonton. The CBC show will be aired

The Shittiest Warrior is a loose, fast-paced and silly but always-honest look at society from the perspective of a “Native dude.” McMahon’s comedy is irreverent and boundary pushing as he focuses his attention on the good, the bad and the ugly of Indian Country. Ryan’s show will sell out and is not to be missed.
