This is an improv-style show and is put on by some great comedians The show changes based on audience suggestions and is truly hilarious. The show is R rated but not bad enough to where I felt uncomfortable bringing family...but use your best judgement. The show runs from 8-9:30 every weekend - reservations are suggested but not mandatory.Shauna C.,
If you've ever been curious about learning improv - or would like to try something fun and unique - join a six-week class with Keli Semelsberger, executive director of Charlotte Comedy Theater. Inspirational, outrageous, hilarious, and spiritual, Keli teaches the gifts of improv that can be really useful in "real" life as well. And the shows on Friday and Saturday nights are super casual and tremendously fun. It's like hanging out with all your funniest friends for the night.Leigh G.,
I laughed so hard I was sore next day. I've never been to improv show before Charlotte Comedy Theater. So didn't know what to expect. Once I got in and saw the comfy couches on the one hand I thought cool, on the other hand thought crap! are they going to pick on me (a fear of mine with all stand up comedy) They are inside a bar (but a separate room) so there is food and drink service straight to your seat which is awesome. Oh Man was it FUN FUN FUN (21+) These guys are on top of their game. They do line games (like whose line is it anyway) where you shout a suggestion and they create comedy around it on the spot. Waaaay cool. Also did long form.. that's an entirely another form of art. Where the people are in and out of the scenes and I don't know how they do it, but it's magical. I am hooked. I have taken other friends with me and they had just as much fun. I now go to Improv shows whenever I travel to a new city, and I can say I've been to 3-4 different places like (Charleston, Phoenix, LA) I thought this crew in Charlotte was better than all others so far. I highly recommend it.Turk Akbay,
I left this place place in tears a soar jaw and stomach pain. Not from being beaten up but from the laughing so hard. Improv comedy at its finest .found this place while looking for something to do while on vacation. $12 per person and all the laughs you can handle. Very interactive and a lot of fun. If I come back to Charlotte I will go back.Ryan C.,
