New Orleans Comedy

The lynchpin for the growing comedy scene in New Orleans” –

They built a comedy scene from scratch in New Orleans” – Vulture

Since 2010 The New Movement produced over 200 original stand-up, improv, and sketch comedy shows more than 10,000 times.

Our venue on St. Claude Avenue was annually voted “Best Place to Watch Comedy” by readers of the Gambit Weekly. Over 1,000 students trained with TNM since we planted our flag in New Orleans back in 2010.

While we moved on from our theater space in 2020 following COVID-19, our improv classes, sketch comedy writing workshops, and corporate team building comedy events are still at the epicenter of TNM today.
