“Neat Underground Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 from the coffee shop.

“Great idea for something fun to do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I was really impressed with the atmosphere of the underground theater and very impressed with the level of talent in the shows. I would really recommend this to someone looking for a place to take a date or to just see local improv theater. The price was right too.

“Growing Staple in Greenville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Alchemy Improv always pleases. Don't waste money on movie theaters. Instead come to Coffee Underground and watch Alchemy Improv Comedy and you'll get a way better value for your money. Their ideas are always new and fresh. I walk out of every show satisfied and plan to come back as often as I can.

What's even better is that at the end of every show, the hosts reminds the audience that they can take classes and learn how to perform improv just like them!

“A hilarious show in a fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love Alchemy improv shows! I can be hard to please when it comes to comedy, but I can always count on getting a good laugh on Friday nights! This is a great way to entertain friends and guests in the heart of beautiful downtown Greenville, and with drinks and food available at the venue, we'll often stay for both the 8 and 9:30 shows.

“Light entertainment from rookie comics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We enjoyed the 8pm show of Scared Setless at the Alchemy Comedy Theater. I suspect the quality of the show must vary greatly depending on the individual artists on tap for that evening. During our visit it was clear these were a group of young hopeful comics. Some were funny, others were not so much. For only $5 it was a reasonably good show though.
