Fundraiser Will Kickstart The Career of Stand Up Comics to Be

1375653_10101367976286735_333254308_nOn October 15, Rampart Street’s Little Gem Saloon will open its doors for one of the biggest, coolest events in New Orleans’ comedy history: an event The New Movement is calling Rookie of the Year.

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.

Tickets are on sale now.
