1919 is almost 100 years of improv experience combined. It's a group of performers who helped build the improv scene in New Orleans. It's a collective of individuals who got us to the first building, which got us the second. But mostly, it's improvisers who are just looking for a monthly excuse to play around onstage together. 1919 is Derek Dupuy, Chris Trew, CJ Hunt, Tami Nelson, Mike Spara, Chris Kaminstein, Mike Yoder, Cecile Monteyne, Jared Gore, Ian Hoch, and James Hamilton.
Audience members have said that a Moon Roof show is like “an acid trip on stage.” The Chicago-based group of iO alumni prides itself in presenting out of the ordinary, brain tickling, and downright absurd ideas. Join Moon Roof on a journey that you will never forget, won’t you? Featuring Renee Barry, De Blennis, Mark Bozovich, Denver Collins, Michael Delaney, Matthew Heston, Sarah Mitchell, and Matt Rosfelder.

Hell Yes Fest
Hell Yes Fest is an annual comedy festival held each fall in New Orleans. Spanning multiple nights and venues, HYF has been the Gulf South’s largest comedy festival since 2011. It features the best comedians from The New Movement in Austin and New Orleans, as well as other stellar performers from all over the damn world.
This year’s fest will take place in October 1st–11th. We’ve grown so much that we’re planning to expand the fest into a second week. The first half of the fest will focus on Film and Sketch (October 1st–5th). The second half will focus on Standup and Improv (October 6th–11th), with other surprise shows and formats (Podcast Recordings, Food, Game Shows, Video Games, etc.) sprinkled throughout.
HYF is curated by a staff of improv, sketch, and standup comedians from The New Movement. Head curator is Chris Trew (TNM co-founder & Creative Director), and helping him out are Brock LaBorde (TNM co-founder & General Manager), and a handful of local comedians who know what the hell they’re doing.
