Isn't that name backwards? Isn't it SHOW THEN TELL?

Tell & Show is a comedy show that gains inspiration off the real life stories of our wonderful guests around town. Our guests tell three stories at various points in the show while we then take those stories and turn them into improv comedy IN THE SAME ROOM AT THE SAME TIME! We love partnering with non-profit organizations, and our door proceeds go directly to the non-profits that we partner with each show.

Amazed? Us too. Come check it out!

Our monologists for this show will be Alex and Becca from Prescription Joy!

Prescription Joy is a healthcare clowning nonprofit promoting healing through human connection, whimsy, education, and play in hospitals and beyond. Healthcare Clowning is a therapeutic approach utilized worldwide, and gives documented respite for patients, families, and staff during medical regimens. Prescription Joy also serves the community as a whole through free public health talks with doctors who discuss common health issues. In addition, they host workshops that train child protective services, police enforcement, and hospital staff in empowering children through the use of clowning-style tactics and human connection. Finally, in collaboration with Child Life Departments at the hospitals they visit, Prescription Joy writes original theatrical plays that provide entertainment and health related lessons for the patients being served. Prescription Joy is currently in four locations: New Orleans Children's Hospital, Ochsner's Hospital for Children, The New Orleans Women and Children's Shelter, and The Village at St.Bernard Assisted Living Facility.
