Publisher's Summary

Meet the residents of Gammage, New York, 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.

Most Helpful

Very smart and funny

Great satire as I'd expect from Harry Shearer. Sure it gets a little silly at times, but always returns to intelligent fun.

Characters are all quirky individuals who we can laugh at and feel fondness for while knowing they are all heading for failure - if not disaster.

I recommend Not Enough Indians for listening to when you want light (but not childish) humor.

(Plus, it's relatively clean: very limited harsh language, nothing graphically described, just a little clean diaper humor).
