THE KATRINA COMEDY FEST
By Rob Florence Directed by Misty Carlisle

Featuring: Judy Jean Berns, Peggy Blow, Deidrie Henry, Travis Holder, Jan Munroe, and L.Trey Wilson

The mayor of New Orleans proposed celebrating Hurricane Katrina’s first anniversary with a fireworks display and comedy hour which were canceled due to public outrage. Could he have meant “Comedy” in the classic sense? Through the words of five New Orleanians, experience the heartbreak, humanity, and yes, Comedy of those who rode out the storm.

THE KATRINA COMEDY FEST received “Best of the Festival” and “Overall Excellence in Production of a Play” honors in the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival and was entered into the Fringe Encore Series at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

THE NEW YORK TIMES wrote:
“The evocative true stories assembled are full of fear, courage and resilience. But they are also rich in the flavorful humor, inextinguishable identity and civic love that characterize the inhabitants of America’s most battered city.”
