Dawn Dumont is a Plains Cree comedian and actress born and raised in Saskatchewan Canada. Her reservation, the Okanese First Nation, is quite possibly the smallest reservation in the world but what it doesn’t have in terms of land area, the people make up for in sheer head size.
Dawn’s comedy style has been described as a coy smile covering a killer wit. Dawn has made people laugh at comedy clubs across North American including the New York’s Comic Strip, the New York Comedy Club and the Improv. She began her comedy career in Toronto on stages such as Yuk Yuk’s and the Laugh Resort. She currently co-hosts the Green Mic every Thursday in New York City’s East Village. Dawn also had a recent role on ABC’s One Live to Live.
Dawn is also a comedy writer and has written for the stage, radio, film and television. Her work has been featured on CBC Radio, Aboriginal Voices Radio Network, and the Aboriginal People’s Television Network (APTN).
