MM8: Alicia Hawkes + Fancy Drew

  • The New Movement 2706 Saint Claude Avenue New Orleans, LA, 70117 United States (map)

Alicia Hawkes presents her solo sketch show! This is going to be a half hour of fun characters, siq vids, hearty lols, terrifying shadow self confrontation, tearing the boundaries of space-time, poo poo jokes, etc. 

Alicia writes and performs sketch in New Orleans with Virginia's Harem and improvises with Kamurai and Claws with Fangs. Virginia's Harem has performed at SF Sketchfest, Women in Comedy Festival - Boston, and Hell Yes Fest. Alicia also teaches sketch at The New Movement and her Twitter account @AliciaHawkes has been recognized by, and

Rick Swenson presents Fancy Drew, who is fabulous, sassy, fashionable, and perhaps most importantly, the world's leading queen teen detective. With the help of his elderly sidekick Clara, Fancy Drew ALWAYS gets to the bottom of the many crimes and mysteries happening in his small town of Bottom Bush Creek.


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.
