Rucker Park is where all stars, alumni, and students meet up for a pick up show that wows the crowd. It’s many individuals working collectively to tear the house down. It’s full of things you’ll talk about all week long. It’s aggressive, it’s flashy, it’s tight, and it’s improv comedy bursting with raw talent.
This happens at TNM this Sunday night. Some of our top alumni and current students get together for some seriously good improv. These shows are always awesome and are not to be missed. Welcome to Rucker Park.

It’s our longest running show and it’s every Saturday night at The New Movement. At each Megaphone Show, we invite a special guest/local celebrity/fun-person-about-town up on stage to share a few of their favorite true stories. We take details of these stories to inspire fast, smart improv comedy. Come see why this has quickly become our most popular show.
