YAD and Get Cultured Present A Not So Kosher Comedy Night!
Doors open at 6:45 PM | Show begins at 7:30 PM
Lucky's Pub-Downtown, 801 St. Emanuel Street
Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
Featuring: Matthew Broussard and a special performance by local comedian, Victor Tran.
Matthew Broussard is a disgraced financial analyst forced into stand-up comedy. The product of a Cajun chemist and Jewish biologist, he earned a degree in Applied Mathematics which he always manages to bring up. (Just did it!) His comedy is heady, self-effacing, and weirdly… educational? He has appeared on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and his own Comedy Central Half Hour special. He is also the creator of mondaypunday, a webcomic/opt/bitnami/wordpress of cartoon word puzzles most find aggravating, but some nerds think is pretty nifty.
Victor Tran is a young, rising stand-up comedian from Houston, Texas. At 25 years old, he's become a staple of his scene. The winner of 2017's Lafftown's Funniest in Houston, Victor has opened for comics like Ronny Chieng, Godfrey, Matthew Broussard, Ms. Pat, Shane Mauss, Andrew Schulz, and more. He's also written and performed for live shows such as Las Cultaristas: Live, The Unofficial Roast of Harry Potter, and Comedy Central's Roast Battle Live.
