New Orleans, La - Comedians of all shapes, size and talents will be slinging jokes throughout New Orleans for The New Movement's annual Hell Yes Fest Nov. 12-16. The event will bring together a myriad of standup, sketch and improv performers from all over the country at venues like One Eyed Jacks, Siberia, The New Movement, Café Instanbul, Allways Bar, Allways Lounge, Hi-Ho Lounge, and The Shadowbox, with special satellite shows at Howlin' Wolf Den, House of Blues and Lost Love Lounge.
After performing at multiple comedy festivals across the country, head curator and New Movement cofounder Chris Trew decided it was time the festival held its own. This year's talent includes comedians like Giulia Rozzi, Sean O'Connor, Sean Patton, Colt Cabana, and many more.
Earlybird all-fest access passes are on sale now here for $85. Wristbands include admission to every show and priority seating. Single show tickets will be available at a later date.
