Chris Trew and Tami Nelson started The New Movement with their bare hands & brains, and this is their show – 2 people focused-up, onstage, and ready to tear it down with impressive long-form improv. And yes, just like they promised with 2014’s  TNM’s Kickstarter campaign, this show will be weekly and free for the rest of Chris & Tami’s lives. This show has been seen all over the country and on various New Orleans stages since 2008 – it now has a permanent home at the nerve center of New Orleans comedy and is free and weekly, forever.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter your events?
Unless specifically stated above, our Austin theater is all ages and BYOB. However, if the event states that we’re giving out free booze (which sometimes happens), you’ll have to show a 21+ ID in order to partake. Our New Orleans theater has a full-service bar in it, so anyone 18 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Other than that, our programming tends to be PG-13 & up, so keep that in mind.

What’s your refund policy?
If you buy an online ticket, you should arrive 30 min before the start of the show to guarantee getting a seat because we also sell tickets at the door and usually have a crowd waiting for no-show seats. If you don’t arrive at least 10 min before the show, your seats could be given out to people on our waiting list, and if that happens, you will not be entitled to a refund as we don’t offer refunds after the show has started.


This show is presented by talent from The New Movement, the nerve center of comedy in the Gulf South. TNM is a duo of bustling conservatories that train the best comedians in New Orleans and Austin, it’s an aggressive programming machine that held over 1200 shows across 50 cities in 2015, it’s an event production company that produces festivals, workshops, and tours like Hell Yes Fest and the Air Sex Championships, and it’s a never-ending hustle to put the south on the comedy map. In New Orleans, arrive early for the show and grab a drink at our patio bar, Rosewood. In Austin, come early to chill in our downtown lobby lounge and meet the best comedians around.
