Tnm Presents: The Franchise! (January 2016) says
The best of the cream of the best crop. A showcase of the heavyweights. The most monolithic mash-up of homegrown house groups calling The New Movement home.

Franchise groups are straight up studs, having logged endless hours of performing. Curious to see what the very best of our improv scene is like? This is the show where you see that.

Friday we feature:

El Guapo (Adal Rifai and Scott Elam from Chicago!)

El Guapo is two man show focusing on improvising with as much heart and play as possible. A longer scene at the start of the show ripples outward creating a small slice of a world where the connective tissue exposed. While sometimes featuring guest performers, El Guapo is Adal Rifai and Scott Elam; friends, roommates and lovable oafs. El Guapo has performed and taught around Chicago and Nashville, most recently as one of the headliners for the Third Coast improv Festival.

They will be joined by the veteran team of Chester Copperpot. The collective of Cyrus Cooper, Derek Dupuy, Mike Yoder, and Nick Napolitano has never played together before. So, you know, it should be a real adventure. *wink*

tickets: $5



Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter your events?
Unless specifically stated above, our Austin theater is all ages and BYOB. However, if the event states that we’re giving out free booze (which sometimes happens), you’ll have to show a 21+ ID in order to partake. Our New Orleans theater has a full-service bar in it, so anyone 18 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Other than that, our programming tends to be PG-13 & up, so keep that in mind.

What’s your 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 as we don’t offer refunds after the show has started.
