DeMarcus Cousins to host 2nd annual ‘Boogie’s Comedy Slam’ in New Orleans


New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins will be hosting his second annual “Boogie’s Comedy Slam” at the Saenger Theatre on Jan. 27.

It’ll be his first time bringing the event to New Orleans after holding it in Sacramento last year and he’s assembled star-studded group of comedians to bring to the Big Easy.

Some of the comedians that will be featured include Rickey Smiley, Red Grant, Tony Roberts, Robert Powell, DC Young Fly and HaHa Davis along with other surprise guests.

“When I’m not at the gym, I’m pretty much a home body, always watching comedy shows and stand-up comedy specials,” Cousins said in a release. “So, I brought together some of my all-time favorite comedians to come out to (New Orleans) 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.”

All of the proceeds from the event will go to local charities and non-profit organizations.
