Organized by The New Movement’s youth education program, Comedy Uprising, and featuring stand-up comedy written and performed by kids aged 11-18, Heck Yes Fest is a unique opportunity for kids to get their foot in the door of the New Orleans comedy scene via a 4-day workshop and appearance in a nationally recognized comedy festival. Heck Yes Fest is proud to be back for its second year at this festival!
Featuring: Saffron Herndon!
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.
