InfluencesJoe Devito, David Cross, Chris Rock, Maria Bamford, Ellen Degeneres, Mitch Fatel, Demetri Martin, Darryl Purvis - and yet none of their talent is reflected in my work...odd.
About me:Tansi. That means hello in Cree. I know very few other words because that's just how it is. I don't have an Indian name, other than Dawn. We can pretend that's my Indian name if it makes you feel better. I don't give out *special* Native American backrubs anymore; my hands are tired. What? Okay fine, stop whining. My god, you can whine. Okay, there you go. Are you happy?
Who I'd like to meet:People with trampolines. Seriously.
