From Student Union to the stage, alumna tackles the business of being funny

“My first experience with stand-up comedy was at an open mic night on campus,” says comedian Adrianne Chalepah (English, '09). “A friend encouraged me, and I got hooked. The students laughed and were so supportive. So I give that night credit for giving me the courage to pursue it as a career.”

Today, Chalepah averages three stand-up shows per month at venues ranging from casinos to powwows to college campuses to conferences (she's a motivational speaker, too).
