Mardi Gras Casino assails funny bones with performances by renowned as well as up-and-coming comics. The first Mardi Gras Casino Comedy Challenge will draw to a close on Thursday, October 6 as the six remaining finalists, culled from a pool of 40, engage in one final laugh-off. Headliner Bobby Collins charms audiences during interludes with his observational humor, acute storytelling skills, and impressions of tractors with hay fever while the contestants vie for a $5,000 grand prize. Additionally, the challenge’s winner receives the honor of opening for comedienne Paula Poundstone at her Saturday, October 22 performance. Paula wields decades of stenography and standup experience in addition to her razor-sharp wit, having appeared in her own HBO comedy special and sitting in on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! as one of the show’s regular panelists.
During both show options, taste buds indulge in the gustatory delights of The French Quarter, with dinner harvested from a menu of continental classics. A fried-calamari-and-zucchini appetizer (a $7.95 value) hauls a flotilla of marinara sauce and basil aioli onto plates. Main-course fare includes the 8-ounce filet mignon with pepper sauce and roasted shallots (a $23.95 value), as well as the shrimp louisiana (a $16.95 value), which sautés a kaleidoscopic garden of vegetables alongside shrimp in a spicy new orleans sauce. The French Quarter’s wine list jumps international borders more frequently than a GPS-savvy fugitive, proffering a diverse selection of ambrosias such as Relax riesling from Germany (a $6/glass value) and a Groth sauvignon blanc from the Napa Valley (a $10/glass value).
A 15% gratuity is automatically added to the check at The French Quarter.
