One of Alchemy’s goals is to connect the Greenville improv community with the larger world of improvisational comedy. Originally created by one of the founders of modern improv in Chicago, the Harold dates back to the 1960s and has maintained status as one of the oldest and most popular improv formats. Harold Night is a monthly showcase of Alchemy’s Harold team. Rounding out the 8 o’clock show hour is Alchemy’s own Tribute, 2-person improv inspired by tracks from a “Best of” album chosen by the audience.
Friday’s second show features the all-star cast of Local Legends doing improv based on the stories of Ed Bynum. Ed is really tall and really awesome. He’s also really getting married in a few weeks and will be moving to Spain before the year’s end. As a farewell to Greenville, this Greenville native and developer for advertising agency Erwin Penland, will be telling true stories to inspire our completely improvised show.
Special guest improviser Mandy Butler performing in the 8 and 9:30 shows.
