Comedy Shows in New Orleans This Weekend (August 22nd-25th)

The nerve center of the New Orleans comedy scene has it all this weekend – out of town guests (Chicago + Denver), new traditions (the Comedy Lottery), Carson (Carson vs. Everyone), and a graduation show featuring the latest group to finish our year-long program (Part Time Humans). Read on and click through to learn more, get excited, and grab tickets!

Thursday August 22nd 8:00 + 9:30p – The Comedy Lottery


What happens when the funniest people in the room are also all in the same show? It’s the Comedy Lottery and we do this baby twice in one night. Scoop up a ticket for you and a crush here.

Friday August 23rd 8:00p – Tim Soszko (special guest from Chicago)


A one-man improv adventure featuring a seasoned veteran of Second City, IO Chicago, The Annoyance Theater, The Revival, and any other place that will let him teach and perform. Tim will perform a long form improv set that includes music, characters, choreography, silent comedy, and more! You will leave this show in awe of Tim’s improv prowess, and barring that, you’ll leave safe in the knowledge that he won’t be staying too long in your city. Grab your ticket here to see Tim.

Friday August 23rd 9:30p – Carson vs. Everyone


Carson vs. Everyone is a competitive storytelling game show along the lines of Iron Chef. Audience members can come to just watch, or preferably, with their best 5 minute story locked-and-loaded. Contestants will submit the topic of their story and if selected, will come on stage and regale us with their tale. Once they’ve finished their story, Carson will tell his story on that same topic. Judges then vote on each story and we see if the crowd can outdo this vivacious raconteur! Tickets are here.
