Found Footage Festival
March 14, 10 PM
March 15, 10 PM
$10 in advance online
$12 at door
The Found Footage Festival is a live show/screening featuring clips from odd and hilarious VHS tapes we’ve found at thrift stores across thecountry. It’s hosted in person by myself and Joe Pickett and we play over 100 shows a year across the U.S., Canada, and Europe, drawing an average of 100-300 per show. We’ve been touring for eight years and had a sold out show at Chalmette Movies last year. This year, our New Orleans appearance will be part of a weeklong festival of New York arts in NOLA sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery, so we expect to get a lot of press attention for our return. You can read more about the show in the L.A. Times and The Onion A.V. Club. We were also interviewed in the New York Times a few months ago and on Jimmy Kimmel Live in August.

THE SHOW IS FREE and is one of the longest running stand up open mic comedy shows in New Orleans. Thats right FREE. This is an open mic format show and you’ll see some seasoned ( w/ Zatarans, caution some seasonings may contain peanuts or peanut extracts) veterans as well as first time performers. Sign up is at 10:00 pm. DID WE MENTION IT WAS FREE BECAUSE IT IS!!!
ComedySportz – Every Friday and Saturday @ 8:00 PM
Unlike most other forms of performance comedy, ComedySportz is great for all ages. The audience of a typical ComedySportz match contains everyone from kids to college students to parents to grandparents. Everyone has a good time and no one gets offended, and if an actlete steps beyond the boundaries of good taste, the “brown bag foul” (a brown paper sack placed over the offending player’s head) will be called to set things straight. If you think “clean” is boring, you owe it to yourself. Free to all students of La Nuit Theater. Tickets are 10 dollars. Now ComedySportz can be seen on two nights Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm. Ticket’s for both shows can be purchased online below at the paypal link.
Friday @ 8 PM
Saturday @ 8 PM
