Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

This show was a gem! The theater is intimate but the talent was huge! We had a wonderful night of surprise entertainment. This one and a half hour show is a must see! It is very affordable and hard and soft drinks are available.

“Fun”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

This is becoming an annual outing for our family. I've got two 12 year old boys who really enjoy the "family" version. Great way to spend an hour while on vacation.

“An evening of family or adult creative humor”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Be sure you know which show you will be seeing, because this is absolutely wonderful for family fun or later in the evening for adult fun. These folks are sooo quick and creative ... so sincere in sharing a good laugh. You will enjoy it so much and pricing is good. Check this out at Myrtle Beach Mall. Tell them 'Gail' sent you. I took some of their classes and learned a lot about being quick on your feet!

Thank you Gail. I still remember the first time you came to a show and then later returned as a student and now I get to see you at Rotary! Thanks for your continuous love and support! Gina

“Very funny!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This was our second improv show. I really liked this one. There was a stage but no props so the players really had act out what they were doing. This show was 18+ and to me was pretty clean for a 18+ show. The crowd was a little older than what I expected but it was still a funny show.

“It's not karaoke, it's better!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

A coaching group, of which I am a member, took an Improv class from Gina entitled Getting to Yes. Improv has fabulous applications to Business plus it's a helluva lot of fun.
Also attended a Saturday night public performance and was amazed at such creativity on the fly. Adrenalin reminded me of a live performance on the set of Saturday Night Live. Go soon.
