The Opener: Mardi Gras Indians

I'm the opening act for Jim Gaffigan on The 2013 White Bread Tour. We are on a 16-city, 21-show tour.

We pulled into New Orleans and of course everybody has been telling me "you HAVE to stop into so-and-so's they have the BEST bla-de-bla's!" But I don't have time to be a tourist -- I've got a show to do, and then a nine-hour drive to Texas the next morning. But of course after the show I couldn't resist. Mr. and Mrs. Gaffigan were going out for some local flavor, and I tagged along. Check out the video -- local flavor indeed!
