A multimedia sketch show from TNM Nola!
TNM Austin – Lavaca
Austin, TX 78701
The New Orleans-based rude. (Colleen Allerton and Lauren LaBorde) brings its multimedia sketch show Not Here to Make Friends to TNM Austin for two shows during SXSW weekend. Through high-energy sketches, videos and the occasional dance sequence, rude. presents its grounded yet absurd take on men, women and friendship.
Colleen Allerton and Lauren LaBorde met in a sketch writing class at The New Movement New Orleans. They are opposites — Colleen is a noisy extrovert with adult ADHD; Lauren has a writerly brain and a dour countenance — but through their love of messy reality TV heroines, excessive white wine consumption, and varying degrees of feminism they have forged a bond on and off stage that is “real fun to watch” (said some guy once). Together they created the viral video “My Purse, My Choice,” which received over 400,000 views and was featured on MSNBC, The Today Show, CNN, The New York Times and your mother’s Facebook page. They also do improv together at TNM.
