For Visiting Comics

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.

Gene's

1040 Elysian Fields Ave in Marigny
Gene's makes a decent poboy. It's walking distance from HiHo, Siberia, and Allways so if you're in a bind for some food late at night, here's your spot. I think they're still cash only. And don't forget to grab a frozen daiquiri!

Kebab

2315 St. Claude in Marigny
A favorite amongst comics, partly because of its proximity to Siberia, HiHo, and Allways. Gyro-style kebab sandwiches. Also a few pinball machines.

Bar/Restaurant

Lost Love Lounge

2529 Dauphine St. in Marigny
This bar is neighborhood as shit and just so happens to have killer Vietnamese food in the back kitchen, serving kinda late, too I think. And, bonus, Tuesday nights around 10pm is Cassidy Henehan's Comedy Catastrophe.

Dive Bar, Restaurant

Mimi's

2601 Royal St. in Marigny
They serve tapas-style food pretty late. The bar's alright. They've got a balcony that makes for a decent hang. Mostly we come here after we're already fucked up and wanna sit down and eat a little something and continue to get fucked up.
