An enrolled member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa, the Ojibwe Outlaw (who was born Lydell Jon Roberts in the Year of the Dragon) is a writer/director/producer & owner of 94 Warriors Studios and has been making people laugh since his mother told the world she was pregnant. Having performed with funnymen Tatanka Means, Vaughn EagleBear, Marc Yaffee, Ryan McMahon, Tito Ybarra, Jim Ruel, Gilbert Brown, Howie Miller, J.R. Redwater & funny lady Shishonia, Mr. Roberts made a name for himself in the comedy world with a smashing debut at the Native American Comedy Festival at Seven Clans Casino – Red Lake and followed that up with a rockin’ set at the Native Comedy Jam – Part Deux and Part 3, also in Red Lake. He has performed in comedy clubs in Minnesota & South Dakota regularly and with his deadpan style, a little too honest observations along with a reputation that got him banned from his first ever venue after his FIRST EVER performance, the Ojibwe Outlaw is ready to make some noise in the world of comedy.
He also operates a video production business. 94 WARRIORS is an entertainment-ish providing independent business specializing in video production since 2006, comedy/public speaking since 2010 (The Ojibwe Outlaw of Comedy is locked in the basement and is only allowed out when he gets gigs), and a line of T-shirts and hats in February 2012. And a sweet nickname generator!
The name 94 WARRIORS came to him while he was still in high school because it was the year he graduated high school (1994) and RLHS is known as the WARRIORS. It was also the year the Red Lake Warriors brought back the winning tradition in basketball led by Derek Smith, Kevin Kingbird, Peach Holthusen, Keveon Kingbird, and the late, great Bob Barrett. This is how he honors his people.
