Kambri Crews once lived with her deaf parents in a tin shed in Texas. She now runs her own PR and production company in New York City. Her book BURN DOWN THE GROUND, is an unflinching memoir about living with two deaf parents in a tin shack, the rampant dysfunction of her rural Texas childhood and the searing violence that left her father serving a twenty-year prison sentence. A renowned storyteller and public speaker, Kambri is notable for mixing conventional monologues with the use of American Sign Language; and for finding the humor in even the most hair-raising of childhood memories. She has performed on The Moth’s Mainstage, The 92Y, UCB Theatre, Gotham Comedy Club and given speeches at SXSW, DeafHope, and many other schools, venues and events.
