New Orleans is celebrated across the country and around the world as a center of extraordinary live entertainment. Not just in the French Quarter but all over the city there's a vast amount of live music, theater, and comedy every night of the year. However, on the inside of what appears to be a thriving local entertainment industry you frequently hear the same criticism we have a lot of entertainment, but not much industry. Plenty of shows, but not enough show business. Bill Taylor is setting out to change that. Bill is the Executive Director of The Trombone Shorty Foundation and the Foundation's Fredman Music Business Institute, in partnership with Tulane University. Chris Trew is a New Orleans comedian, and a comedy entrepreneur. Chris is the creator of the nationwide Air Sex World Championships, the co creator of the Hell Yes Fest comedy festival, and the co founder of The New Movement, with comedy theaters in Austin and New Orleans. Peter Ricchiutit talks over the changing face of the biz side of New Orleans show show biz with Chris and Bill.
