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.

The Carolina Improv has added a Wednesday evening show and it was great! Instead of the short games like their weekend performances, this version continues for the duration. It isn't as broken up. It is for the 18 and older crowd, a tad suggestive but not raunchy. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. On weekends, one night is family night and one... More

Small setting... Great that it uses audience participation. Good flow If you like " who's line is it anyway"--This is for you! Some shows are all ages but on Valentine's day it was was adult setting! Will definitely go back!

We stumbled on the Carolina improv as our waitress at the local diner was giving us recommendations. Her advice was not misplaced, the improv company and show was hilarious! Soo amazing we are attending another show tonight?

My family & I had an awesome time at the 'Whose Beach Is It Anyways' If you enjoy laughing then I recommend adding Carolina Improv as a must see on your next trip to Myrtle Beach.

This small venue brings large laughs and is a perfect place to start your weekend. the Saturday show is family friendly while the Friday show may bring a few blushes, however not crude.

This will be one of your "Do Not Miss" destinations in South Carolina. Tucked away in the Myrtle Beach Mall is a fantastic company of quick-witted, funny actors who put on a performance you will not forget. You have a choice of family-friendly shows and shows aimed at an adult audience (adult themes but never vulgar or terribly offensive). This... More

I attended last night's show, "Who's Beach is it Anyway?" and enjoyed all of the performances. However, the company's website described the show as pertaining to things about Myrtle Beach. Sadly, there was no content relating to Myrtle Beach at all. I would have loved to have heard jokes about the bike rallies or tourist traffic. Since improv shows are... More

This was a great night out for us after the holidays being so hectic. The venue is small, and so was the crowd but it was the week after new years...I suspect that it fills up quickly during the busy season. The hostess/mc was wonderful and good at getting audience participation. We'll definitely go back! Also, we weren't sure what... More

I've been vacationing in Myrtle beach for over 30yrs and just happen to come across this place. It was a excellent night filled with laughter and fun! We brought the entire family from my 5&7 yr old girls to my parents in their late sixties. We ALL loved it! They even included the girls names in the show to continue... More

I've been to the improv several times and highly recommended it if you're in town and want to get your laugh on. Great improve actors, great storylines, great audience involvement. Well worth the small price ($14) and time (90 min). Try it you'll love it.
