The New Movement is an intimate theater space (capacity 65) featuring an array of stand-up, sketch, and improv comedy shows. We feature a full bar, cozy patio, upstairs aquarium, and a community of creatives who make TNM the nerve center of the New Orleans comedy scene.
We know how hard it can be to lock down a space for your show. From staffing issues to non-refundable deposits, it can be a headache. TNM is experimenting with opening our space up to anyone who needs help mounting a show – we’ll provide the space and (potentially) the staff, you provide the show. We’ll take the first $50 that comes through the door to pay for minimal venue expenses and the rest is yours. Charge $5, $10, $15 – your call. Burlesque, theater, stand-up, spoken word, as long as it’s a comedy show, you can put up whatever you want. If your show doesn’t fall under the comedy umbrella but you think it’s a close call, we still want to hear from you.
The only catch is TNM is booked solid with talent from our student and alumni base – so a lot of the prime time slots are unavailable. Our available dates this Fall are
Some Thursdays at 8:00p and 10:00p
Some Fridays at 11:00p
All Saturdays at 5:00p
Some Sundays at 8:30
We’re proud to provide space for our home grown talent and we look forward to finding a space for you too. Hit us with those questions (and pitches!) below:
