The Alchemy Comedy Theater has hilarious live comedy shows every Friday and Saturday at 7:30 and 9pm. This holiday season we have several upcoming shows to fit the season:

  • Friday, December 18th at 9pm: Local Legends: Improv inspired by Carols from Brian Boughner
  • Saturday, December 19th at 9pm: Truth Be Told: Storytelling show on the theme JOY
  • Saturday, December 26th at 9pm: Femmeprov: Comedy Improv from Ladies for Everyone



Ring in the new year downtown with the Alchemy Comedy Theater. This show features stand-up comics Jason Farr (named SC’s Funniest comic 2014), Jake Sharon (recent transplant from Austin, TX), and headliner Boris Khaykin (from NYC). Second half features them and the cast of Local Legends for an all-star improv set! Before and after local DJ, Bradezone, will help us party.

At 9:30pm the cash bar in gallery adjoining the theater will open with light horderves. Then at 10pm the show starts with an all-star and completely improvised show. Then we’ll provide champagne for the countdown to 2016!
