IMPROV COMEDY featuring Alchemy’s Improv 101 students, Never Decaf Improv (Greer, SC), and Hijinxs (Greenville, SC)
Alchemy’s Improv 101 Student Showcase takes the stage to show you the beginning levels of improv and “yes, and”-ing your fellow improvisers.
Never Decaf Improv is a local improv troupe that performs regularly at Stomping Grounds Coffee House and Wine Bar in Greer, SC. Founded by Phillip Whiting in early 2018 with Corey Dewar, the additions of Emily Kelly, Teddi Fishman, AJ Laurie, and Sean W. Bailey made this comedy family complete. Along with monthly guest players, we create family-friendly comedy shows. We build our shows around short-form improv games that our audiences enjoy; however, for comedy festivals we delve into organic openings intertwined with long-form and short-form improv.
Hijinks is a group founded by members of The Alchemy Comedy Theater. Hijinks performs a mockumentary longform show. Cast includes: Jeremiah Jones, Rachel Hardin, Tyler Prescott, Joe Guy, Jacki Flynn, Ruth Aranoff, and Manus Clancy.
