About The New Movement
The New Movement opened in Austin, TX in February 2009 as a full time comedy conservatory. Founders Chris Trew and Tami Nelson met in 2004 while taking improv classes in New Orleans and had long dreamed of running their own theater and conservatory. They later partnered with local improvisation powerhouse Stupid Time Machine to bring TNM back home. The New Movement has brought something new to the Austin and New Orleans Improv scene: a specific approach to the craft that couldn’t be found in a book or anywhere else in the country. The difference paid off as TNM attracted both eager rookies and veteran performers. The recent four-day Hell Yes Fest Comedy Festival, the largest in New Orleans history, is a perfect example of their blend of creating local talent and courting national performers. With shows and classes running in Austin, Houston and New Orleans while maintaining a national presence with online material, frequent tours and festival appearances, The New Movement has joined an elite group of comedy collectives who maintain a strong presence in multiple cities and online.
