Badass Comedy Shows & Training
Our anything-goes open mic that happens every Thursday at 9:30. This show is hosted by Rob Gagnon and features standup, sketch, and performance art (maybe!). To get some time on Block Party please tweet to Rob Gagnon @TweetsbyRG or email email@example.com!
Lights Up! is TNM's brand new improv show that features house groups who are on the rise! Want to see what TNM has cooking in the comedy oven? These are the newest, baddest, freshest troupes coming out of our conservatory to date. Every week we highlight a troupe and every season has a host troupe, which this season is Mean Girls! Come see comedy the way it was meant to be seen...on Friday nights at 8p! And stay for The Franchise at 9p!
Stand up comedy is a process. Jokes don't spring fully formed from the head of the comic, Athena-style, but are birthed messily, awkwardly, and hilariously over time. Come be part of the process at CLUBHOUSE! 10 comics selflessly offer up 5 minutes of ALL NEW material for your enjoyment and derision, trying to turn their brain nuggets into comedy gold. Then, 3 headliners show off the final draft.
This show is pay-what-you-want admission.
Sign up by email, Tuesday through Saturday by emailing TNMClubhouse@gmail.com. You will receive an email telling you whether you made the list on Sunday. Sets are 4-5 minutes each, and new material is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED (please don't do anything you've done on a booked show! Bring us your fresh brainmeat!).
