AP Comedy is the youth education branch of renowned comedy theater and training center The New Movement. TNM operates out of two locations - Austin and New Orleans - and through our in-school programming, out-of-school classes, mobile workshops, and summer camps, we seek to bring excellent improv arts education to as many young people as possible.
Know a talented youth who belongs onstage? Have him/her hone their gift at AP Comedy Camp! Each week-long session introduces students to the basics of improv comedy - scenes made up on the spot.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH OUR PROGRAM
In addition to having fun and trying new things, AP Comedy Camp focuses on taking a class of 10-12 young performers and forming them into a team capable of pulling off a full mainstage improv show.
At the end of each day, students will perform in an open performance hour where friends and family can come and watch their student put on an informal practice show. The week culminates in a final showcase performance held on the TNM mainstage before a packed house of family, friends, and TNM supporters.

GIVE TO A CAMPER
In order to make our programming accessible to students of all income levels, we offer AP Comedy scholarships.
In the future, we hope these scholarships will be created in part with grant funding, but at our current stage, our scholarships are funded entirely out-of-pocket from the theater and by the generous donations of our supporters who think kids and comedy make a good combo.The cost of a full scholarship is $300, but you can donate anything you'd like. We're attempting to raise enough to offer six full scholarships, but we're happy with whatever you can afford to give.
Wanna help? Cool. Use the Eventbrite form above to throw some bucks in the hat. Let’s team up on this and make these kids feel like rock stars!
