For those who used to turn to Blah Blah Blah Live!
on New Orleans access television (Cox Cable 8) for either laughs or wisdom, the good news is that the producer/talent duo of Fayard Lindsey and Wild Bill Dykes (pictured) are working their way back towards regular broadcasts. But until they are back in the studio and ready to take your insightful and probing questions live on-the-air, you'll have to get off the couch and go to them. They'll be among nine comics in a showcase at One Eyed Jacks that will be filmed and aired with some sketch comedy as the show returns to television. Other comics in the showcase include PH Fred, Joshua Pinkston and Neil Stasney. Dykes and Lindsay have been performing regularly around town for years and have promoted both stand-up comedy in clubs and in festivals. The duo also plans to start making their segments available via the Internet site www.YouTube.com
so you'll never have to wait again. Tickets $5. -- Will Coviello
9 p.m. Tue., Aug. 22
