Never Decaf (Greer, SC)
Never Decaf Improv is a local improv troupe that performs regularly at Stomping Ground Coffee House and Wine Bar in Greer SC. Founded by Phillip Whiting in early 2018 with Corey Dewar. Soon the additions of Emily Kelly and Teddi Fishman made this comedy family complete. With monthly guest players we created a family friendly comedy show for all to enjoy. Our show mainly consistent of short form improv because we love it. All of our members are also part of Alchemy Comedy where we perform long form improv. With our love for all things Improv we have created a form that takes short form story games that inspire long form style montages.
