Rookie of the Year is a twist on a traditional stand-up show. Instead of featuring only well-known stand up comedians, the Rookie of the Year show will feature improv comedians who have never really tried their hand at stand up, but have always wanted to try. The show will be complemented by sets from well-known stand-up comics as well. It will be unlike any comedy show the city of New Orleans has ever seen.
There will also be a raffle for gift baskets, theatre tickets, and other fabulous prizes. All the proceeds from the show and raffle will benefit the biggest comedy festival in the South, Hell Yes Fest.
