Friday May 2nd
7:30PM – Harold Night ($8)
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. Alchemy Comedy’s Harold Night is a monthly showcase of Alchemy’s Harold team and our new incubator Harold team, Harry. Come watch improvisers create entire shows out of your suggestions.
Friday’s second show features the all-star cast of Local Legends doing improv based on the stories of this week’s guests, the Greenville Jazz Collective. GJC is a local non-profit organization made up of highly respected members of the Greenville Jazz Community. Not unlike Alchemy, the Jazz Collective is working to spread the awareness and appreciation of their art by holding regular performances and educating interested citizens of the Upstate. They’ve also got programs to teach the next generation about jazz, (so do we, well improv summer camps). Due in part to this like mindedness, we’re excited to invite them to tell true-life stories to inspire scenes as this week’s Local Legends!
