It's one thing to stand out in a group, but it's quite another to stand out by yourself. That's something comedians like Julie Mitchell deal with all of the time. David Benedetto spoke with Julie about Bear With Me, an open mic night she hosts at the bar 12 Mile Limit, and about what makes funny, well, funny.

You are about to enter another dimension. Not just one of sight and sound, but of mind.

A dimension of wild celebration of the human condition, a place where everyone is “dawlin” and no one is without a cold drink. 

There is a signpost up ahead. You are about to enter...The New Orleans Zone.

Born and raised in New Orleans, this musical risk-taker and lightning-speed booty shaker was first introduced to bounce music (a call-and-response style subgenre of hip-hop) in the early '90s. She was immediately hooked and, as she tells Ophira Eisenberg, spent the following decades working nonstop to establish herself as an icon of the New Orleans music scene.

But all of this gushing tends to leave out a single and singular fact of life in the Crescent City: This town, for lack of a better word, smells.
