Saturday April 26th
7:30PM – Improv Showcase: Fork, Taylor/Dustin, and the Improvised Video Game ($8)
At this Saturday’s early show, Alchemy Comedy has an improv showcase of guests from around the Upstate. First it’s Alchemy’s own Fork, an improv format where a single scene is repeated, twisted, flipped, and inverted until it has explored a full range of ideas as far removed from the original as possible. Then two soon-to-be Alumni of Anderson University’s Far Sketched Improv, Taylor Dorsett and Dustin Bays, will perform a 2-person improv set. Headlining the Showcase is Craig Holcombe doing his 1-man show The Improvised Video Game, where he does an improvised show based on a nostalgic video game.
9:00PM – Stand-up Comedy from The Unusual Suspects ($10)
Building off of the success of the original Unusual Suspects Comedy run, Unusual Suspects 2.0 promises to continue to deliver the high level of hilarity that the name has become known for. Comprised of a rotating cast of upcoming comics based out of North Carolina, each one offers a different personality and style of comedy. With a show that ranges between improv and stand-up, 90 minutes of side-splitting laughs are guaranteed! The UNUSUAL SUSPECTS are:
-Brent Blakeney – @sixsevencomedy – Host and Feature for the Comedy Zone, Host at Goodnight’s Comedy Club. -Ryan Brown – @ryanbrowns – Host at Goodnight’s Comedy Club. -JM – @jmjustcomedy – Host – Cure For The Mondays Comedy Night at Tir Na Nog, and Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club. -Matt White – @headclown – Port City’s Top Comic 2012, DSI’s Funniest Comic 2013. -Rusty Haynes – @rustyhaynes – Host at Goodnight’s Comedy club.
