If you haven't heard of the most recent Quarantine Late-Night hit “Tone and Taanii's Tea Time”, are you even Social Distancing???

This late night talk show found only on Instagram and featuring Hip Hop artists Antoine Edwards Jr. and Nataanii Means, has quickly become the most popular late night live show in Indian Country.

Each night averages a constant of 300 viewers at a time! Most often times it's larger than that, and the comment section is where you find some of the most entertaining material.

Most recently they featured Black Eyed Peas artist Taboo, who joined the live stream and even promoted it from his personal instagram page!

This week is the Official schedule and launch for #TeaTime with myself, @antoineedwardsjr and @dakotawahkinney – we’ve built a community in the last week, over 300 viewers almost every night. We’ve given away over $1000 in donations and out of pocket last week, along with the fuzzy Pendleton snag blankets, Pendleton backpacks and beadwork. We have more to giveaway this week including a pair of Yeezy 350’s. The reason we decided to run with this is because 1. We love our people, and we love to not only give back to them during these times, but provide a safe place where we can tell stories, share talent and make everyone laugh. So tune in and get ready for the Tea 🍵 #NoJudgementZone #GoGetMyDrum – – poster by @cxctxswxrld

Each day has a theme and when I say these guys entertain, these guys ENTERTAIN. Arguably the best aspect of these live shows are the audience engagement. 300+ people all get a say and even get to come on live video to talk about things like hilarious snag stories, ghost stories, and on Traditional Day Wednesdays” we get a taste of some awesome “tradish” material from artists all over Indian Country. 

They even feature contests, including live karaoke and a talent contest!

All contests are decided by the audience on a 1-10 judging scale, and prizes are given from those who have donated items to give away! Its a TON of fun. Tune in on either Antoine's IG @antoineedwardsjr or Nataanii's @nataanii_means.

And that's the tea!!
