I Don't Know Words is a solo sketch show written and performed by Vanessa Gonzalez. Vanessa has always had trouble finding the right words so she found that the best way to get her point across is through characters, absurdity and songs. The show will be making its debut at this year's Hell Yes Fest in New Orleans.
WOMEN is a comedy outfit in Los Angeles, CA. They write/perform sketch together and write/perform stand-up individually. They’re all egomaniacs who think everything is about them, and they work terribly together. Most writing meetings devolve into fistfights, but none of them can punch very hard, so no one ever gets hurt.
When & Where
Hell Yes Fest
Hell Yes Fest is an annual comedy festival held each fall in New Orleans. Spanning multiple nights and venues, HYF has been the Gulf South’s largest comedy festival since 2011. It features the best comedians from The New Movement in Austin and New Orleans, as well as other stellar performers from all over the damn world.
This year’s fest will take place in October 1st–11th. We’ve grown so much that we’re planning to expand the fest into a second week. The first half of the fest will focus on Film and Sketch (October 1st–5th). The second half will focus on Standup and Improv (October 6th–11th), with other surprise shows and formats (Podcast Recordings, Food, Game Shows, Video Games, etc.) sprinkled throughout.
HYF is curated by a staff of improv, sketch, and standup comedians from The New Movement. Head curator is Chris Trew (TNM co-founder & Creative Director), and helping him out are Brock LaBorde (TNM co-founder & General Manager), and a handful of local comedians who know what the hell they’re doing.
