The second annual New Orleans edition of Hell Yes Fest features standup comic headliners Christian Finnegan and Duncan Trussell and dozens of standups, improv groups and other acts over six days in November.

The festival also features a keynote address from honorary Hell Yes Fest chairman Joey Greco, host of late-night television staple Cheaters.

Last year's inaugural festival was a four-day event held at three venues with more than 30 performers. This year, the festival expands to a week of shows and more than double the performers. Venues include The Republic to The New Movement, The Shadowbox Theatre, Cafe Istanbul, Siberia and the Hi-Ho Lounge. Events kick off Nov. 6 and continue through Nov. 11. Tickets will be available online.

Standup comic Christian Finnegan was a regular talking head on VH1's Best Week Ever and has appeared on Chapelle's Show and other series, and fellow standup Trussell hosts the fantastic The Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast and is also a writer and actor.

Other performers include noted monologist Kambri Crews, standup comic Rory Scovel, Improv Olympic's World Boner Alliance, New Orleans-New York comic Sean Patton, Austin's Kath Barbadoro, the Altercation Punk Comedy Hour, and former Road Rules-er Theo Von, among dozens others.
