24 shows. 12 workshops. 300 performers. From November 1-10th, improvisors, stand-up comedians, and sketch comedy guests from across the country will converge on Greenville, SC for the 5th Annual New South Comedy Festival. This year's performers hail from Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Orlando, Washington D.C., Austin, Rhode Island, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Knoxville, Louisville, Denver, and here in the Carolinas!

Comedy workshops will also be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on both weekends.


Improv 101 students (Greenville, SC)

Each of the Alchemy Comedy classes are given a chance to show off their improv skills on stage.  Hosted by the instructor, students in these shows use the skills they’ve learned in either 101, 201, 301, or 401 to play in front of a crowd.

Laughing Stock (Greenville, SC)

Jason, Evan and Todd, have been performing together for the last 4 years. Our show, "Meanwhile Elsewhere" allows us to take our audience to any place and time on a whim. We look forward to seeing what happens with you guys!

Sparkle City Improv (Spartanburg, SC)
