Looking for a laugh? Nothing can relieve tension like a good, old fashioned laugh that starts deep in your belly and works its way up until it uncontrollably bursts out of your mouth. And that is exactly the kind of laugh Mark Normand will illicit this weekend when he headlines The Laughing Derby.
Mark has a little creole in him, being raised by seemingly normal parents in the decidedly not-normal city of New Orleans. Through some kind of Cajun, voodoo, hoodoo hybrid of conjuring, he made it through college and shortly thereafter onto a comedy club stage.
Normand now lives in New York City, he runs two shows and two podcasts – while appearing on Conan, Inside Amy Schumer, and a season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He also finds time to perform in comedy clubs and at colleges all over the country.
Normand will be at The Laughing Derby starting tonight (August 14th) through Saturday, August 16th. Tickets range from $12-$15, and showtimes vary.
