What Alchemy Comedy Offers
Alchemy Comedy Theater offers a variety of different shows, classes, and special events throughout the year. You can even hire them for your next event!
Comedy Shows: Improv, Stand-Up, and Sketches
Fans of shows like “Whose Line is it Anyway” and skits on the “Tonight Show” will love Alchemy’s improv shows. I have no idea how they come up with things so quickly that are so funny. They’re truly unique comedic experiences.
If you attend, you may even get the opportunity to participate in the fun on stage! It’s been said that the more shows you attend, the funnier everything gets. All upcoming improv, stand-up, and sketch comedy shows can be found on Alchemy Comedy’s calendar.
Improv Comedy Classes
The Alchemy Comedy Theater offers improv classes throughout the Greenville area. Each 6-week long class is held weekly from 6:30-9:00 pm. There are a variety of classes based on experience, but in order to reach the next level, you need to graduate from the previous class. The only graduation requirement is to attend at least 4 of the six classes.
However, there’s no comedy or theater experience needed in order to take Improv 101. Alchemy Comedy Students also get free admission to their shows while enrolled in a class! You can read more about their classes on Alchemy’s website.
