Hosts Mary-Devon Dupuy and Laura Sanders lovingly handpick the perfect blend of four comedians and mash them together for your enjoyment. Boxed showcases comedians that are all headliners in their own right, and also raises money and awareness for a local non-profit. The combination of incredible performers and fundraising for a worthy cause will leave the audience with those same warm feelings some have when squeezing the final drop from the bladder of their favorite rosé: ‘What a deal! I had fun! I’m a better person than most people I know!’’ October’s lineup features comedians Lisa Smith, Lane Lonion, Jeff D., and Lauren Malara, and showcases LIFT Louisiana, a group that educates, advocates, and litigates for policy changes needed to improve the health and wellbeing of Louisiana’s women. Your ticket gets you a fantastic show, some good karma (a portion of ticket and bar sales go to LIFT), and an entry into a raffle of awesome prizes from local businesses. If you want to sweeten your prize-odds, raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the show, with 100% of raffle proceeds going to LIFT. So grab a friend you love to laugh with, or a date you can’t imagine you’ll want to “talk” with much, or a sweaty wad of cash and a sense of optimism, and come on down to Hi-Ho Lounge at 8pm on October 17. Tickets are $10, show starts at 8pm, doors open at 7pm. Get there early to enjoy the boxed wine specials (we got the good kind), and prepare your palette for the glory that is Boxed Comedy!
