All month long the cast of Alchemy Comedy will be competing in a dual duel for your laughs. Each week teams of two will go head to head for the chance to be named the Alchemy Improv Champion. The winner is chosen by audience vote will get the chance to tell their personal stories in the second half of our show and and move on to the next round of competitions. Here’s the bracket schedule (with a description of each team below):
Tribute: Harrison Brookie and Meg Pierson both love improv and they both love music. Now they’ve combined them together to use an audience suggested album to inspire each of their scenes.
Hardworking Men doing Hardworking Improv: Two construction workers (played by Jason Underwood and Ben Burris) who’ve taught themselves how to do improv teach kids the values of hard work. It’s improvisers playing characters playing characters!
Snickerdoodle: Before Alchemy Comedy arrived Greenville only knew short form comedy games. Now Jason Underwood and Harrison Brookie bring you a whole new set of games you’ve never seen before… because they created them!
Listeners Like You: NPR gets its support from their audience. So does Meg Pierson and Ben Burris. Come see their entire show inspired by a fictitious NPR show. It’s all the things you love about public radio without all the things you hate.
Kind of Like Jesus: Jason Underwood and Meg Pierson love comedy. God loves Jason Underwood and Meg Pierson. Therefore God love comedy. And he would certainly love improv in the style of fundamentalist Christians.
Slimprov: Harrison Brookie and Ben Burris are both very skinny and very funny. Watch in amazement as two men, half the size of normal people, play several different people on stage at the same time.
