Lafayette Comedy Teams With Acadiana Center for the Arts For Big Shows
Dubbed "The Comedy Club Series", the creators are excited to bring a new genre of entertainment to the stage of the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
Lafayette Comedy produces local and national comedy shows in Acadiana and has been doing so for several years. They have brought in comedians such as Tom Segura, Nate Bargatze, Mark Normand, Ms. Pat, Doug Stanhope, and Bobcat Goldthwait.
Upcoming shows being presented by Lafayette Comedy include:
Dan St. Germain (HBO, Comedy Central, Jimmy Fallon) at Club 337 on November 4
Mo Alexander (Comedy Central, Bob & Tom) at the Jefferson St. Pub on November 13
Harland Williams (Half-Baked, Rocketman, Dumb & Dumber, Conan) at Club 337 on November 17
Dave Stone (The Boogie Monster Podcast, Late Late Show) at Club 337 on December 1
Neil Hamburger January 13th
Dusty Slay on January 20
Now that Lafayette Comedy has teamed up with the Acadiana Center for the Arts, it creates an opportunity to open eyes to other genres of entertainment. Patrons of the ACA will now be more aware of the comedy side of the entertainment coming to Lafayette, and the comedy show patrons will now be exposed to a great variety of other forms of entertainment hosted by the ACA.
It's a win/win situation, according to Jason P. Leonard, the mastermind behind Lafayette Comedy.
Having a consistent, beautiful venue to hold shows should help Leonard attract bigger names in comedy. And, with the ACA being in the heart of Downtown Lafayette, the dinner options and after-party options are multiplied.

When Leonard was approached by the ACA earlier this year about bringing comedy to its venue, he saw the value in the agreement for both sides:
Teaming with the Acadiana Center for the Arts provides an amazing venue for our shows as well as a new audience for our shows. It also provides a new genre of entertainment for the ACA regulars. The ACA holds a nice-sized crowd, but still provides an intimate feel, which is perfect for our comedy shows and the great musical entertainment the ACA brings to Acadiana. - Jason P. Leonard, Lafayette Comedy
