TNM presents Knockout: On the Bubble!

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

This fall, Knockout is GOING REALLY F-ING BIG with our comedy clash. 14 teams with a total of 50-something WITTY WARRIORS will compete for your laughs and votes. KNOCKOUT presents NEXT-LEVEL show concepts, and YOU DECIDE the winner in the COLOSSAL SHOWDOWN OF COMEDIC REVELRY!

This tournament is so big and so good that some of our past participants are competing for the last available spot in our special bubble show: Blood Atonement vs. Contagious vs. Portals! Come see gigantic characters, substantial scene work, and fulfilling relationships. With three times the improv, the laughs will be massive.

Which improv troupe will have the heavyweight humor to win your vote? Check out Knockout’s COLOSSAL SHOWDOWN OF COMEDIC REVELRY on Thursday at 9:30pm.

COME each week to ROOT for your favorite in this BULLISH bracket tournament. They will bring the FUNNY and the FURY to win the coveted title of Knockout Champion and a primetime one-hour show spot at TNM, the nerve-center of New Orleans comedy.

$5 per ballot


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.
