Within stumbling distance of Freret Street’s restaurants and pubs, La Nuit Theater aims to end or begin evenings out with tears of laughter. Unlike the premium-cable version of Sesame Street, ComedySportz shows eschew racy material, going so far as to place a brown paper bag over the head of any performer who crosses the boundaries of good taste. Held Saturdays at 7 p.m., the game-based format pits two refereed teams of improvisers against each other as they romp through tasks such as delivering dialogue in the style of Shakespeare or performing a scene backward.

God’s Been Drinking claims to be the longest-running improv show in New Orleans, mixing vets and newcomers in an hour-long show held Fridays at 8:30 p.m. It’s followed by the ever-changing sketch comedy show Fear and Loathing, praised by Gambit for its “breezy, spirited clowning.”

Many performers come from the ranks of La Nuit’s conservatory program, whose instructors boast impressive backgrounds: Yvonne Landry is a former Second City instructor who’s worked with improv legends such as Del Close and Matt Besser, and Bill Chott has written and performed on The Dana Carvey Show and Wizards of Waverly Place. To avoid the type of groupthink that caused JFK to fill a bay with pigs, the theater also brings in comedy masters from outside New Orleans, who in the past have included veterans of Curb Your Enthusiasm and MadTV.
