Comedy Shows This Weekend in New Orleans

It’s Memorial Day Weekend and that usually means swimming, cooking outside, and talking about flags. America, we get it. But this Memorial Day weekend, what if you happened to plant yourself at your local comedy venue? What if we told you a little something about every show happening this weekend? *Fire up the grill*

Thursday 8:00p – Standup comedy showcase
Did you know we teach standup comedy classes? Did you know that those students are absolutely killin’ it? See it for yourself tonight at 8:00p.

Friday 8:00p – The Wheel of Improv
The Wheel is fast becoming one of the most talked-about shows at TNM. See it for the last time on Friday because it’s moving to Saturdays starting in June.

504 Comedy Week is here!

The latest offering to New Orleans’ constant stream of celebratory events, 504 Comedy Week is an opportunity to soak up a diverse collection of programming at The New Movement. All shows will be $5.04 – that’s about half off our normal ticket prices (whoa)!

This weekend is also the debut of our new standard Friday night programming which includes the wildly popular “Wheel of Improv” at 8:00p and our new weekly standup comedy showcase “St. Claude Comedy Hour”.

“The Wheel of Improv” is American Ninja Warrior mixed with an episode of Saturday Night Live with a dash of Who’s Line Is It Anyway minus all of the stuff in American Ninja Warrior that won’t fit on our comedy stage. The Wheel of Improv is a handful of comedy show formats randomly jammed together, executed by a team of the most experienced performers in New Orleans.

“St. Claude Comedy Hour” is stand-up comedy at New Orleans’ full time comedy venue, hosted by Clark Taylor and featuring local legends, up-and-comers, touring acts, and surprise drop-ins.

On Saturday our weekly “Comedy Night in New Orleans” holds down the 8:00p slot while house group “Unhinged” is at 9:30p.

Come see why TNM has been voted “Best Place to Watch Comedy” annually by Gambit Readers and why Vulture said we “built a comedy scene from scratch”.

The La Croix Comedy Fest is This Weekend

the la croix comedy festival + comf

Since 1981 La Croix has been the talk of the beverage world. Their ingredient list and sales records are both well kept secrets. Their flavors are as likely to be discussed at black tie galas as well as rowdy college house parties. No other liquid is as universally beloved and, supposedly, hated as La Croix.

Now the canned carbonated beverage is getting what it deserves. A night of comedy dedicated to its existence.

Tickets

From the official festival event listing:

Everyone knows the flavors of La Croix are derived from the natural essence oils extracted from the named fruit used in each of the LaCroix flavors. But did you know that there’s a comedy festival dedicated to the iconic canned soda?

The La Croix Comedy Festival is a night of comedy inspired by a certain flavored carbonated water. Arrive early to peruse the carbonated museum of art, get your picture taken in the flavored water selfie booth, enjoy the only live comedy show completely dedicated to the only beverage dedicated to revolutionary natural flavors.
