The New Movement - New Orleans
2706 St Claude Ave, New Orleans, Louisiana 70117
Summer in NOLA is HOT HOT HOT, yo. Some people dig it, but those people are CRAZY. If you hate SWEATING so much your hair looks like you just got out of the shower, we have a way for you to BEAT THAT HEAT. It’s comedy so COOL, you’ll laugh the warmth right off your BODY.
Every Monday in the Marigny, KNOCKOUT presents eight show concepts on our SIZZLING stage, and YOU DECIDE the winner in the EXTRA HOT SKIRMISH OF THE SUMMER!
In this week’s MAIN EVENT: FRIENDO vs. PORTALS
Sometimes the heat makes you weird. Like in the desert, when it is so blazing hot, you think you see a nourishing, refreshing pool that’s not really there. We hear that’s called a mirage, but we’ve only been New Orleans hot and that means imagining a sweet ole snoball on the searing pavement. This week’s Knockout competitors are brining this kind of “wait, what am I looking at” weirdness.
Knockout couldn’t be more intrigued to have FRIENDO in this match-up. They will present a Twilight-Zone-style show where a narrator will guide the audience through three vignettes about love and relationships. You’ll expeirence all this through through the lens of horror. On the flipside of weird, PORTALS returns with their an interdimensional, improvised journey through time and space, presenting an ever-changing comedy-scape twisting and turning through the inner depths of the theater and the soul.
Which one will present the WEIRD HOTNESS to spark your imagination? Check out Knockout’s EXTRA HOT SKIRMISH OF THE SUMMER on Monday 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.

The New Movement is the nerve center of the New Orleans comedy scene. It's a bustling conservatory that trains the best comedians in New Orleans, it's an aggressive programming machine that features the most comedy shows under one roof in the South, 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 this city on the comedy map. Arrive early for the show and grab a drink at our patio bar, ROSEWOOD. Register for classes at TNMcomedy.com. #WeLiveComedy
