Mark Normand
Thu. Sept. 1 | Before New Orleans’ recent comedy explosion, it produced Mark Normand, born and raised in the city before honing abroad his sharp and refreshingly old-fashioned, lethally funny stand-up. Normand has made countless TV appearances, including a recent stop on The Late Show, a Comedy Central half-hour and several Conan spots, and been Amy Schumer’s longtime, reliable opener, including their recent Madison Square Garden appearance. Stand-Up NOLA presents his homecoming with comedians Matt Owens and Cassidy Henehan at 8 p.m. at The Joy Theater.
