The New Orleans comedy scene has grown from a handful of shows a week to a handful of shows every night of the week. It’s fitting that we kick off the biggest week in the history of New Orleans comedy with amazing local improv, sketch, film and stand-up comedy acts. Before we open our city to the out of town guests, we show off what we’ve built. Come celebrate with us.

Featuring: Addy Najera, Stupid Time Machine, Dean’s List, Sophie Johnson, Chris and Tami + the season 2 premiere of the locally produced web series Least Favorite Love Songs (more TBA)
