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!
We’ve been escaping the blistering NOLA heat by laughing our pants off. Not literally, silly, but we have been laughing a lot at our Knockout competitors and are wearing only skirts, dresses, and shorts to cover less of our legs. So, that statement is near the truth, though it should really be more like “laughing with our pants off.” Oh, wait, that sounds pervy, doesn’t it? We’re sorry. Nope. No. We’re not. We’re not sorry that we are dressing appropriately and having so much fun that we aren’t paying attention to just how blazing the outside is. Our life is good!
Keep your mind off the heat and keep your butt in a cool chair with two of our two Knockout semi-finalists. FRIENDO wowed us with their absurdly creepy and delightfully bizarre sketch comedy journey. We are on the edge of our seats waiting for what they dream up next! Their competitor, THE BIOLOGICALS, is no stranger to the weird. Their improv is always an eclectic and twisted path to your giggle box.
Which troupe will discover what makes you laugh loudest? 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
