Carolina Improv Company is located INSIDE the Myrtle Beach Mall at the Uptown Theater with seating for approximately 75 people. It's a very intimate (and small) space and serves beer, wine and soda. Yes, it's a little unconventional but that's what makes it fun (and cheaper than other shows). Our seats are transportable cushioned chairs and sometimes we have to pull out folding chairs when people are begging to see us. The fire marshall lets us have up to 110 people in the space. Since the mall does not provide outdoor signage it could be tricky to find us. The mall anchor is Bass Pro Shop and Uptown is on that end of the mall. For the quickest path to the theater, guests should park at the back of the mall between Bass Pro Shop and Carmike Cinema. Hungry? There are several restaurants at the mall where you can eat before visiting us.

My best friend and I visited the last night we were in Myrtle. We started not to go, but I am so glad we did. They definitely get the audience involved, and their improv is hilarious. There was literally only one small skit I didn't laugh at, and I can't even remember what it was about. I wish I would... More

We've seen a lot of the shows in Myrtle Beach, but this has to be the best we've seen! The venue is small and the audience is encouraged, or should I say prompted to participate. We went to the Saturday night 18+ show and were not disappointed. The show is based on Drew Carey's Whose Line is It? and the... More

My husband and I went to Carolina Improv as part of his 60th birthday celebration. We were in the front row for the show. We had a blast and laughed so much at this very entertaining group! You never knew what was coming next. Would love to go back next time we visit Myrtle Beach!

Fun for everyone! Highly recommend for family fun! (Need more advertisement for directions regarding actual location in the mall...little difficult to find).

My first time to an improv and loved it! I give it to the folks who are performing with such talent. I do have to say that the MC was rather chatty, but I think she meant well! Would definitely recommend.

I've been to the show twice. Once the clean version the other the not so clean but not nasty version. Both times were a blast!!!! Had so much fun! It's a small room and seating is limited so if you can get seats online but they also sell them at the door. An in expensive way to have a great... More

We have been to the Carolina Improv twice now, and I must admit we were invited the first time to see one of our neighbors preform. What a great time we had. Some of the skits were so funny we were tearing up from laughter. We went a second time and had just as much fun. Every performance is unique... More

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed the show. It's not a big area so I would recommend buying your tickets early. While it is small, that is part of what makes it so great. By the time you leave the show, you feel connected to the cast and other show attendees. This is a must do in Myrtle Beach. The next... More

We went to the adult only show on Friday and it was lots of laughs. The scenes were fun, the actors witty, and the pacing was good. I definitely recommend it and I plan to go back next time I'm visiting Myrtle Beach.
