Event Details

Chris Trew (Booker, Comedy House NOLA, founder of Hell Yes Fest, the largest and longest-running comedy event in the South, and Hell Yes Creative, a comedy education agency.)

The Gauntlet is an exercise for comics to workshop their unique perspective and develop new material on the fly.

One by one each comic takes the stage and gets a minute on random topics shared by their peers. After each 3-4 minute set, you’ll get feedback. Which topics should you pursue? Did you discover a new premise? A past Gauntlet student described the process as “20 open mics rolled into one.”

Leave your material at home. Bring paper, a pen, and an open mind.

Each student will get multiple sets on stage.


(Wednesday) 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm(GMT-07:00)
