Michael Kabotie Lecture Series – “An All Around Comedy and Cat Guy, A Conversation with Joey Clift”
Joey Clift is a comedian, TV writer, and enrolled Cowlitz Indian Tribal Member. Writing credits include Spirit Rangers on Netflix, New Looney Tunes on Cartoon Network and Molly of Denali on PBS. He created, wrote and directed the Comedy Central digital series “Gone Native,” his award winning short films have screened everywhere from Just For Laughs to The Smithsonian Museum and his November 2019 appearance on the Earwolf podcast “How Did This Get Played” was called a “watershed moment” in podcasting by Indiewire, Vulture and Uproxx among other outlets. Most importantly, he started the LA Underground Cat Network, which is a 16,000-member strong Facebook group for Los Angeles comedians to share pictures of their cats. He’s kind of a cat guy.

This is a lunchtime lecture, attendees are invited to grab lunch, sit down and enjoy the show!
