“A lynchpin for the growing comedy scene in New Orleans” –


The New Movement is the home for alternative comedy in New Orleans. Since 2010 we’ve produced over 200 original shows more than 10,000 times in the venue annually voted “Best Place to Watch Comedy” by Gambit readers since 2015. Full bar, free parking, and a badass community of creatives make TNM the nerve center of the New Orleans comedy scene and the only place to catch a variety of improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy shows every single week.
