NEW SOUTH COMEDY FESTIVAL
24 shows. 12 workshops. 300 performers. From November 1-10th, improvisors, stand-up comedians, and sketch comedy guests from across the country will converge on Greenville, SC for the 5th Annual New South Comedy Festival. This year’s performers hail from Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Orlando, Washington D.C., Austin, Rhode Island, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Knoxville, Louisville, Denver, and here in the Carolinas!
Seating is limited, so it’s always wise to pre-purchase your tickets online. All shows will be at the Alchemy Comedy Theater in downtown Greenville, SC. Street parking is available (if you’re lucky), along with several nearby parking garages.
Comedy workshops will also be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on both weekends.
Local Legends is the Alchemy Comedy Theater’s flagship weekly improv show. A different local legend (person of note) tells their own local legends (personal stories) to inspire this fully improvised show.
