Meet the residents of Gammage, NY, a town on the verge of declaring bankruptcy, when inspiration strikes. Why not go native, and open a casino? With Not Enough Indians, actor, writer, producer, and former Saturday Night Live cast member Harry Shearer joins the ranks of such comedian/authors as Steve Martin and Michael Palin, with a brilliantly funny, whip-smart satire of greed, collusion, distrust and betrayal in the halls of Washington and the casinos of Native America.

About the author (2006)

Inside the creative mind of Harry Shearer is a little bit of everyone--including a profoundly overblown heavy metal bass player, the boss of a cartoon nuclear power plant, a cloying suburban neighbor, an unctuous television anchor, and Richard M. Nixon, among many others. Shearer is not a legendary schizophrenic. Rather, he's one of America's foremost humorists, observers, and chroniclers of contemporary lives. Whether he's playing a role in a major motion picture, writing a screenplay, creating a comedy television show, or performing on radio, it's his job to out both the humor and humanity that always, he believes, dwell within.
