Since 2011 the Alchemy Comedy Theater has taught hundreds of students the art and the joy of comedy improvisation in our regular 6 week courses. On Saturday, June 3rd we have a condensed all day Improv 101 intensive (9am to 5pm with a lunch break). There is no comedy or theater experience necessary and all students get free admission to shows for the weekend. Those who go through this course will also be eligible to take the Improv 201 intensive the following Sunday to Thursday nights from 6:30-9pm (June 4-8th). These classes are for adults, but we also have a half-day summer camp for kids (ages 8-11) that runs Monday to Friday on June 19th-23rd.

Once a year, the Alchemy Comedy Theater pulls an all-nighter, the Greenville Comedy Marathon! If you like comedy, there’s something in here for you. Offering THIRTY hours of comedy, the Marathon features your Greenville comedy favorites from Alchemy Comedy, No Expectations Comedy, Laughing Stock Improv, and visiting guests from across the Upstate!

We’re also continuing the tradition of challenging four brave comedians to attempt the totally possible – 12 shows in 12 hours, overnight from Midnight-Noon! This year’s All-Nighter Cast includes Wendy Pisor, Stacey Cherubini, Nico Estevez, and Nate Oulette, and for the first time we are offering a special challenge to our fans – attend all 12 hours of the All-Nighter challenge, and you could win a spot in our next Improv 101 class! Think you can last?

For a full list of shows check out our Facebook event or head over to Eventbrite to reserve your seat. Individual tickets are available for all shows, or see every show in the marathon—and save $75—with a 30 Hour Pass! Shows from Midnight to Noon are FREE!

And of course, with 7 shows every week, there are plenty of chances to get off your couch and laugh!
