HYF: Sudden Death

  • The New Movement 2706 Saint Claude Avenue New Orleans, LA, 70117 United States (map)

A special showcase featuring 30 comedians grappling with the clock (and each other) for the best set of the night. Each comic gets one minute of mic time, but only 15 will move on to the next round, where they have an additional minute on the mic. The 5 comics who advance get one more minute until it's down to the final 2. Two minutes later, one comic is crowned Sudden Death Champion and wins a very special prize.

Presented by Megaphone Marathons!

Tickets are $10 online, $12 at the door!

Hell Yes Fest is a carefully-curated indie comedy vacation held each fall in the world's greatest city - New Orleans. Entering its 6th year, HYF is a unique celebration of the brightest local comedians, the coolest up-and-coming shows from all over America, as well as various late-night occurrences that you just can’t find anywhere but New Orleans.

Hell Yes Fest is produced exclusively by The New Movement, the nerve center of comedy in the Gulf South. The fest’s head curators are Chris Trew (TNM co-founder & Creative Director) and Brock LaBorde (TNM’s CEO), as well as a handful of local comedians who frequent festivals across the country.
