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.

Then Alchemy Comedy is the best hospital!......And so much cheaper than a shrink. Intimate setting with good food and bevs. I totally get "caught up" in the improvising and forget my problems, laugh, and gain a new perspective. Right on Main St. only $10.

Our new favorite thing to do in Greenville. Amazing improvisers, cool location, and the price is right. Do yourself a favor and go see the competitive improv show on Saturday nights at 7:30 pm. AMAZING.

We were searching for things to do at night in Greenville that were within walking distance of the Hyatt Regency and ended up buying tickets to the Carolina's Funniest Stand Up Competition Round 2A . The location is a few blocks down Main St from the hotel and Alchemy Comedy Club as others have probably stated already is located within... More

We weren't expecting the show to be as funny as it was. The performers were talented and made everyone feel a part of the experience. It's a small theater so get there early for a good seat. Being in the basement of the coffee shop gave us the opportunity for tasty treats as well.

I love Alchemy! They have regular improv shows 4 times a week and sometimes have stand-up shows. Its the best comedy in the greenville area for sure. Its a great place to take friends after diner or before going out. The shows are so affordable too! 8-10 per ticket.

Alchemy is located below ground in downtown Greenville in a coffee shop called Coffee Underground. The coffee shop is pricey and offers some nice desserts. This is a nice place to go when you want some laughs and maybe some coffee and dessert. Parking is a challenge, but we found a paid parking lot within a block down the street... More
