The Las Vegas/Denver based comic Sam Tallent rolls into NOLA for two free shows this week. Tallent is one of the country's top touring comics, has headlined festivals galore and is a firm NOLA favourite. Catch him at Night Church @ Sidney's Saloon on Thursday 25th (8.30pm) and at Local Uproar @ The Allways Lounge on Saturday 27th (8pm). Both shows are free and both have free ice cream from sponsors New Orleans Ice Cream Company.
New York's Louis Katz (pictured) is a regular visitor to New Orleans, and he lands back in town this Thursday to close out Night Church (Sidney's Saloon, 8.30pm, FREE). The comic's credits include Jimmy Fallon and a Comedy Central special, and two more NYC comedians join him on Thursday - former NOLA resident Molly Ruben-Long and Chris Trani. Free ice cream Cafe Bars by American Cold brew might sweeten the deal even more. Also this week, a new formatted show, Down the Rabbit Hole, looks at the internet history of the featured comics (HiHo, Lounge, Fri 12th October, 8pm, FREE). Sunday 14th October is a benefit fundraiser for the Sea Cave Arcade with a strong local line up (Siberia, 8pm, FREE).
