On Saturday, May 1, John "Leno" Maucere and Superdeafy both will be appearing at the DeafNation Expo, held at the state fairgrounds in Indianapolis. Superdeafy (John Maucere), a deaf superhero who flies, stumbles and slides to people's rescue, strives to educate people about Deaf culture and the importance of good triumphing over evil by battling the evil Witchy (Vae). Also seen roaming the exhibits will be John "Leno," who will be meeting with attendees and quizzing them on various topics for his "JohnWalk" segment.

"Both of our shows promote deaf culture, pride and heritage," Maucere said. "Hearing people will enjoy the shows, especially because they will see what Deaf culture is all about. The shows are especially perfect for those who are in Deaf Studies or taking American Sign Language courses."

Tina Jo Breindel, of Riverside, Calif., agrees wholeheartedly. She brought her Deaf son to watch Deafywood at the recent DeafNation Expo in Ponoma, Calif., and said, "Their performance is just the spot you wouldn't mind getting caught on. They're funny. They're history. They're the best introduction to Deaf America!"
