Chris Trew co-founded the Austin, Texas improv comedy conservatory The New Movement theater in 2009, later expanding classes and adding home bases in Houston and New Orleans, with the help of local improv crew Stupid Time Machine. Trew, a New Orleans native, debuts a local edition of Hell Yes Fest this weekend, bringing together dozens of local and national comics and improv groups over four days at venues across the city. Los Angeles comic Moshe Kasher headlines the opening event Wednesday at Republic New Orleans, with Trew and Dane Faucheaux opening. The event's nine other shows are split between the Shadowbox Theatre and Cafe Istanbul (inside the New Orleans Healing Center). Other performers include improv groups Laughter Against the Machine, Tesla and Awkward Headbutt, and comics Sean Patton, Kath Barbadoro, Neal Stastny and others. Weekend passes $55, all shows $10.
