Native American Comedian Jim Ruel has been described as a "Native American-Chris Rock." Jim is an enrolled member of the Ojibwe Nation and an alumnus of Stanford University. His extremely charming presence smokescreens for his sharp and witty barbs that pick apart stereotypes and misconceptions about his fellow Native Americans. In addition to performing at Clubs and Colleges, Jim was the Winner of the Four Directions Talent Search, and won 1st Place in the 2004 NBC Diversity Talent Search. His numerous television credits include: The World Stands Up (BBC, London), Comedy Central, NBC, ABC, and BBC America. He is also a member of the Another Indian Uprising. You can also visit him on Facebook or NativeComedian.com.

Flappers Comedy Club and Restaurant presents "Another Indian Uprising," a comedy show fundraiser dedicated to supporting the people of the Standing Rock Reservation protest against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, on Wednesday, December 7th 8pm tix $20. The line-up features Native American comedians Jim Ruel (Showtime), Shishonia Livingston (Lil Lil Wayne Puppet Show), national headliners, and one or more special guests who will all come together to fight big oil with big laughs.

According to the protestors and to several concerned environmental groups, the pipeline (scheduled to be built under the Missouri River) could pose a serious threat to Standing Rock´s water supply, which would adversely affect roughly ten-thousand people on the reservation. Additionally, the Pipeline´s route cuts through Native American burial grounds which have been deemed sacred by the people of Standing Rock.

A portion of the ticket sales will to go to the Standing Rock Defense Fund for those who have protected water and who will be tied up in the legal system well into 2017.
