Dean's List (NOLA)
Dean's List is a long-form improv troupe from New Orleans, LA formed by accident in 2012 while taking classes at The New Movement. Their longevity can be attributed to three shared beliefs: Ghosts Are Real, Blue Ivy Carter is Not a Robot, and Heightening Like The Fuck. They've performed at Hell Yes Fest (NOLA and Austin), and Improv Wins! in Austin. They can be seen regularly at The New Movement in New Orleans in their own monthly show The Lottery and in the rotating show, The Franchise. Their club-kid-weirdo-alter-ego short form improv act, MIAMI IMPROV MACHINE, has performed at Fun Fun Fun Fest and Hell Yes Fest (NOLA and Austin).
Mr. Muscle (ATX)
Mr. Muscle is a brave new troupe for a troubled world. Forged in the belly of Mount Kilimanjaro, Mr. Muscle has come together to perform improvisational comedy the way it was meant to be performed. The members of Mr. Muscle have performed comedy all over the country, at places like Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hell Yes Fest, and Del Close Marathons.
Mr. Muscle = Nick Mallard, Jeff Whitaker, David Howe, Aaron Walther, Terance McDavid

$7 online/$10 door
ALL FEST PASSES ONLY $45!
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
We can't sell alcohol at our venues, so it's BYOB. However, if the event states that we're giving out free booze (which sometimes happens), you'll have to show a 21+ ID to get in the doors.
What is the refund policy?
If you buy an online ticket, you should arrive 30 min before the start of the show to guarantee getting a seat because we also sell tickets at the door and usually have a crowd waiting for no-show seats. If you don't arrive at least 10 min before the show, your seats could be given out to people on our waiting list, and if that happens, you will not be entitled to a refund since we don't offer refunds after the show has started.
