Best Standup Act

Good vs. Evil


Any year where Don Rickles plays at The Orleans makes it hard for any other act to get in consideration as the best stand-up in the city, but a one-off at the Palms was stunning for the quality of comedy as well as the unlikely source. On February 9, chef Eric Ripert and culinary personality Anthony Bourdain brought their two-man show Good vs. Evil to the Pearl in a shockingly funny hour-plus that was a real treat for foodies and non-foodies alike.
