Dean’s List (NOLA)
Dean’s List is a long-form improv troupe from New Orleans, LA formed by accident in 2012 while taking classes at The New Movement.

They’ve performed at Hell Yes Fest (NOLA and Austin), and Improv Wins! in Austin. They can be seen regularly at The New Movement in New Orleans in their own monthly show The Lottery and in the rotating show, The Franchise. Their club-kid-weirdo-alter-ego short form improv act, MIAMI IMPROV MACHINE, has performed at Fun Fun Fun Fest and Hell Yes Fest (NOLA and Austin).
