Some of the best improv comedy in the South and certainly the best in the upstate area. Great shows, great venue, and super affordable. Check out a show some time.

Alchemy Comedy Theater never disappoints. With six+ shows a week, there's something for everyone. Great idea for an affordable date night, and the people there really put on a positive experience from the time you walk in the door (which is through a coffee shop with a ton of yummy food and drink options, so...BONUS!) If you want to go... More

One of the best ways to experience a city like a local is to check out its comedy offerings, and Greenville is no exception. Coffee Underground (easy to find, on Coffee St.) hosts an impressive lineup from Alchemy Improv Company, with shows varying from competitive improv games to Local Legends--interview-inspired humor and even a "Moth-like" Truth-be-Told show. The venue is... More

Alchemy Comedy is a welcoming environment with talented performers, right in the center of downtown Greenville. The perfect night out for visitors or residents. You will laugh, you will smile, you will leave a better person.

Love spending my nights laughing at Coffee Underground. The Alchemy community is both welcoming and hilarious. I met someone in the audience that travels from Atlanta to see these shows-that speaks volumes about this great experience!

Local original comedy three nights a week so it's easy to just drop in and catch a show. Love of the small cozy venue that makes everything feel so personal . And I love the desserts and drinks at coffee underground. Especially the Elvis milkshake with an added squirt of chocolate .

I visited this place together with a friend. We joint for a battle of three teams and it was fantastic to see different teams acting on an impro comedy. I think the right team won as they were amazing how they took the information of the interview into account for their show!! The place is small but everybody was very... More

Stopped in a THU night to see the stand up comedians. Four were competing based on audience voting to move to next round. The host was very funny. Couple of the acts pretty good, other two were so-so. You can buy coffee/dessert/wine upstairs and bring it into the theater.
