Thanks to the great reviews on TripAdvisor, my group decided to go check out a show at the Carolina Improv. Driving to the show, we did not know what to expect, but we were surprised in a good way. To start, tickets were only $12.50 (online), so about the same price as a movie. We walked into the mall, and saw the Uptown Theater with a line outside. We were happy we were not alone! Walking in, the workers were extremely friendly, and the set up was perfect. It is a small, intimate theater where everyone could be upfront and personal. There was a little bar where beer, wine, and soft drinks could be purchased. Since we bought our tickets online, our seats were already picked out for us, with our names on our seats (nice little touch!)
The show is very similar to "Whose Line is it Anyway," where the "players" are playing different improve games on stage. All the suggestions, ideas, statements, and questions came from the audience, so it is a very interactive show. My favorite game was the press conference where the audience came up with a press conference topic (ours was "George Washington is announcing he is going to be a Victoria's Secret angel) and the press people (the other players) were asking him (the player who was clueless as to the topic) questions to give him clues, so he could guess who he was and why he was having a press conference. Very fun!
All in all, the show lasted a little less than two hours, and we were extremely entertained. The host explained everything very well, knew how to get the audience to participate, and allowed things to run smoothly. It was a very unedited show, and clearly the players had no idea what the topics were going to be and such. It was fun to see it all unfold right in front of your eyes.
