Carey Nelson

Performing Member

Carey started acting in high school then studied speech and art in college. Later, while working on his Master of Architecture degree at Clemson University Carey missed performing and joined Clemson’s best and only Improv Troupe, Mock Turtle Soup. Completely new to improv, Carey soaked up all he could from his teammates and workshops at the iO, Second City, the UCB, DSI, Theater 99, and Alchemy. Carey started taking classes with Alchemy after graduation in 2015 and joined as a performing member of Alchemy in 2016

When not doing improv Carey designs restaurants at DP3 Architects, Ltd.; plays guitar and leads worship at his church; and goes adventuring with Elizabeth (his wife), Tripp (his son), and Ramona and Daphne (his pet sugar gliders).
