So What’s with the Name?

Posted on Updated on

Alchemy is an ancient science of attempting to turn base metals like lead into gold. Although the practice never actually yielded the intended results, it was a precursor to the modern chemistry. The word alchemy has come to simply mean the process of transforming something common into something special.

The art of comedy improvisation has many similarities. All shows take inspiration from audiences and create comedy gold.  Although these shows can sometimes seem like just plain fun, the skills used in improvisation can help us in the real world. These skills are not always second nature and we believe they can be learned. That’s why Alchemy Improv Comedy is committed to both weekly shows and regular classes for the public.
