Thinking about coming through New Orleans to do some comedy? Hell yeah! It's always a good time here. In fact, there's so much to do here that we put together a list of the places us locals like to go and places we like to tell visitors to go check out. Also, please, try to find someone to stay with here. Most of us have space to put up a couple comics. Please do not use AirBNB in New Orleans. It's a long story, but basically, it's killing the ability for anyone to afford housing and is ruining our neighborhoods. We'll find you a couch or a bed or an air mattress that won't fuck up our economy.

Full disclosure: two cops own this bar, but it's fine. It's a dive bar named after the movie (which they play on loop 24hrs a day). Drink's are fairly cheap considering it's 1 block off Bourbon St. When someone drags me to Bourbon St., this is a nice little oasis from the bullshit.
A go-to spot for a lot of us, especially after Comedy Fuck Yeah at the Dragon's Den. Decent drinks, decently priced. They have a back bar that is technically in a courtyard thanks to a retracting roof, so it's the only bar you can kinda smoke in. Get a frozen Irish coffee. Great way to beat the heat
This place is weird and interesting. It's got a bunch of old medical equipment and explainations of old shcool medicine. You can walk through yourself or there's a guided tour at 1pm. Benjamin didn't specifically recommend being high here, but it'd probably be tight. Admission: $5. Hours: Tues - Sat, 10am - 4pm. No guided tour Saturdays.
If you're in the area and drunk and need food, this is the spot. You might have to wait a bit, but it's worth it. Eat that shit on the sidewalk outside with the other drunk idiots. They don't fuck around in here though, so just order your food and move on.
