Spanning multiple nights and venues, Hell Yes Fest has been the Gulf South's largest comedy festival since 2011.

Hell Yes Fest is an annual comedy festival held each fall in New Orleans, LA. It's curated by a staff of improv, sketch, and standup comedians from The New Movement. Head curators are Chris Trew (TNM co-founder & Creative Director) and Brock LaBorde (TNM's CEO & CFO), as well as a handful of local comedians who frequent festivals all over the country. Never heard of TNM? Here's a Splitsider piece about us. The fest features the brightest local comedians, as well as stellar headliners and the best up-and-coming comics and groups that we can find.

This year's fest will take place November 15th-19th and will feature improv, sketch, and stand-up, with other surprise shows and formats (podcasting, film, food, video games, etc.) sprinkled throughout.

For all press inquiries, please contact Chris Trew here.

Thank you for visiting our site and we hope to see you out at our big, fun party!
