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.

If you want a fantastic, intimate and entertaining evening, you would be hard pressed to find a better place in the Grand Strand. The improv troop at Carolina Improve is witty, sharp, edgy and quick, and they will almost certainly leave you wanting more. Family nights are great as well, especially if you have young kids. We brought our 5... More

It was our first time at a live improve. We had a great time. The players mixed well with the audience and had them responding back in no time. Every time they asked for suggestions and we gave them different senarios it was definitely a hoot. At the end of the show all the players met with us to say... More

First time at a "live" improv show. It was a clean, hilarious adult show. Would recomend this to anyone who wants a good hearty and healthy laugh. We were graciously greeted as we walked in. At the beginning of the show, Jan asked every row where they were from, had a nice personal touch to it. The audience was asked... More

Went there with friends after dinner. It is something unique, and we had plenty of laughs. The players mixed well and were entertaining the crowd. The whole show lasted 1.5 hours which went by fast. Full house on a Tuesday evening. Strongly recommended.

My husband and I happened upon this little improv place in a mall in Myrtle Beach. We love to laugh and so we bought tickets. We were not disappointed! We had a great time at the show. It is not rehearsed - totally spontaneous. The cast is fun and talented and there is just the right amount of audience participation... More

Intimate theatre in a mall with some very talented folks. Each show is different as audience participation throws the actors some curve balls. A fun way to spend a couple of hours in Myrtle Beach.
