Hell Yes Fest returns Thursday with a night of improv comedy at The New Movement. The festival is the product of the comedy incubator The New Movement, and this year’s lineup is its most ambitious with 11 nights of stand-up, sketch and improv comedy, including stand-up sets by Nick Swardson, The Daily Show’s Hasan Minhaj, Fortune Feimster, Ian Karmel, Jo Firestone, closing night performer Sarah Silverman (who'll play the Saenger Theatre), and more. 

Unfortunately, the lineup took a few last minute hits. Clayton English, Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher, James Adomian and The Grawlix have all had to cancel for a variety of reasons, but even with those changes, Hell Yes Fest offers an impressive lineup with shows uptown at NOLA Brewing and downtown at a number of venues on St. Claude. Special ticket packages are available for the NOLA Brewing shows and the St. Claude shows.

Tickets are on sale now.
