TOURS

TNM has toured our homegrown improv, standup, and sketch comedy shows throughout the country. We have collectively performed in over 100 cities, from NYC to San Francisco, Los Angeles to Honolulu. If it’s a star on the flag, chances are we’ve been there. We’ve also hosted events that range from small private parties to 500-person mega-venues to major music/comedy festivals (SXSWFunFunFun Fest, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally).

AIR SEX

If you haven’t witnessed the world’s fifth major sport, you don’t understand what living like a champion is. Helmed by Chris Trew, the Air Sex World Championships (co-produced by the Alamo Drafthouse) have criss-crossed our great nation finding the country’s next great Air Sex champion, bringing their finest love-making techniques to invisible partners and visible crowds. This show has spawned a feature film, a documentary, and a TV series thus far. To book an Air Sex show in your city, CLICK HERE.

Bring TNM Workshops to Your Festival

Our favorite workshops are below, but we always take special requests! All classes taught by TNM Faculty. To inquire about bringing TNM Tourco to your neck of the woods, check out more information here and contact christrew@gmail.com.

The Straight/Absurd Dynamic
This workshop will dissect your stage relationships with the goal of immediately identifying the Strait/Absurd dynamic and how to play both sides effectively and more importantly, joyfully! We will help you recognize your existing strengths and weaknesses within this relationship dynamic and offer tools to simplify Strait/Absurd scenes.

Device Art
While walk-ons and tap-outs are beautiful devices when used correctly, they often cause problems when used incorrectly. In this workshop we’ll discuss the proper techniques to executing these popular devices including mechanics and heightening.

The Pattern is Everything
Being in your head has a terrible reputation in improv circles. This workshop is all about being in your head at the top of the scene (a good thing) and then using the information to truly play out of your head for the remainder. One exercise, one technique. Adding pattern recognition to your bag of improv tricks will help you find the comedy faster no matter the form.

Crush Sketch Comedy
Learn to turn your improvised material into more permanent sketch comedy material. We’ll cover everything from bringing ideas to the table to how to brainstorm on stage and in some cases, we’ll help produce and organize a run of your brand-new (yet to be written!) Sketch Comedy show.

Is there something in particular you’d like for us to teach? We’re all ears. If your request isn’t in our repertoire, we’ll recommend someone!

CORPORATE SHOWS

If you’re looking for the best ways to entertain your captive audience - no matter the size - we can craft the perfect lineup of comedians and interactive shows to pull that off. Or if you’re looking for more educational activities, our improv training curriculum features team-building exercises that enhance “group-mind”, trust, and cooperation while providing attendees with a ridiculously fun, low-pressure, eye-opening, bond-creating time.

Or maybe you’re looking to entertain AND educate. We can do that, too. Spend half the time learning stuff, the other half laughing at stuff. We can split your huge group into two, stage different performances and activities with each, and then flip-flop them.

The whole event is customizable. Whether you’re looking for a one-hour show for 200 teenagers, a bunch of fun group improv exercises for a dozen of your employees while on your company retreat in New Orleans or Austin, or a multi-day, multi-workshop extravaganza for every cat enthusiast in the region, we’ll design and customize a program to meet your needs.

Our New Orleans space has a full bar that can be rented out for private or public events. Our Austin space is currently BYOB, but alcohol can easily be provided by catering and mobile bar services.
