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.

Molly's at the Market

1107 Decatur St. in French Quarter
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
