Rob Fairbanks grew up in the Little Earth of United Tribes in Minneapolis, then moved to Cass Lake as a member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe several years ago.
He was well aware of the impression people had of reservations: poverty, drug abuse and alcoholism. Fairbanks admits there were times when he was younger "that I didn't think I was going to see outside the front door." Ever since he was a kid, though, he learned he could make people laugh. "Humor was a way to cope," said Fairbanks, who always dreamed of being a comedian. "To me, it was beautiful, a gift. Humor is what we call good medicine." Fairbanks hopes he'll be able to share that medicine in the near future, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $10,000 this week for a documentary movie about two Indian comedians and their quest for fame. For years, Fairbanks had a fear of performing, but a friend eventually pushed him onto the stage. He loved it. At the first all Ojibwe Comedy Jam at Palace Casino in Cass Lake in 2014, he met Roberts, who had been doing shows across the country and appearing at open mic opportunities in the Twin Cities. Together they cooked up the road trip adventure to show people that Indians "are not dead, and that we're funny," Fairbanks said. "We want to shed a new light on rez life," said Fairbanks. "People mostly hear the negative about life on the reservation, that's what sticks with them. There is so much positive, so much good coming from the reservation. I always wanted to represent my rez." Fairbanks is known in Indian Country and beyond for his social media bits on YouTube. As the "Rez Reporter," he often is seen around Cass Lake taking selfie videos (https://www.facebook.com/rezreporter). The comical reports, done in an exaggerated Minnesota/"rezzy" accent, show Fairbanks shivering in 40-below weather making obvious observations about the cold. His "traffic report" from Cass Lake once showed "bumper to bumper" traffic snarls that turned out to be a line of cars waiting for a train. He's also done cooking segments, featuring such delicacies as "wiener water soup" and Spam. He's hosted local events, dubbing himself "The Darker Bob Barker. "It will be all real-life stuff, you know, like Real Housewives of the Jersey Shore," Fairbanks deadpanned. Roberts and Fairbanks will visit other Indian comedians and stop in reservations and other communities along the way, visiting old friends who have become successful. They will also do some free comedy performances in order to "lift each other up in the worst possible moments," Fairbanks said. Musician Charlie Parr plans to do the soundtrack for the documentary. In a trailer for the film, Fairbanks talks about being in a gang because he didn't see any other way. If that happens, Fairbanks promised in a video that he won't change, he won't become commercial. "But if I do go commercial, make sure you buy some Fairbanks Wiener Water Soup," he said, reaching for a can in his cupboard.
