DeMarcus Cousins is not only a 3x NBA All-Star, 2x Gold Medalist and the NBA’s most dominant big man, but he is also a stand up comedy junkie. January 27th 8:00 PM at the historic Saenger Theatre, DeMarcus will be hosting his 2nd Annual “Boogie’s Comedy Slam” and has assembled his own roster of All-Star Comedians to bring to the Big Easy. Boogie’s Comedy Slam will feature a line up of some of the biggest comedians in the game: Rickey Smiley (BET Comic View/HBO Def Comedy Jam/Rickey Smiley Morning Show), Red Grant (HBO Def Comedy Jam/Shaq’s All-Star Comedy Jam), Tony Roberts (HBO Def Comedy Jam, BET Comic View), Robert Powell (Shaq’s All-Star Comedy Jam, 3x Louisiana’s Comedian of Year), DC Young Fly (MTV Wild’N Out, MTV TRL Host), HaHa Davis (Instagram Superstar) + surprise guests.
This will be the 2nd year in a row DeMarcus hosts his comedy slam. The first one was in January 2017 in Sacramento, CA at the sold-out Memorial Auditorium.
“When I’m not at the gym, I’m pretty much a home body, always watching comedy shows and stand up comedy specials. So I brought together some of my all-time favorite comedians to come out to Nola and put on a once in lifetime show. We had a huge response to last year’s event in Sacramento and just going to keep it going. I think it’s going to be something fun for everybody while also benefiting the city.”
100% of proceeds will also go to local charities/non-profits
