Welcome to the theater that started improv in Charlotte!

Charlotte Comedy Theater is an ensemble of highly skilled comedic performers who improvise scenes and games based on audience suggestions.  Versed in both long and short form improvisation, our ensemble creates high energy, audience interactive comedy that will leave you laughing for days.  Our Chicago roots are evident in our award winning training center, shows, private events and corporate team building workshop. CCT was the first improv theater and training center in Charlotte, and we continue to produce the areas best comedic talent as reflected in our winning "Best of the Best" several years running from multiple publications. CCT is one of those "you had to be there" experiences people talk about that you just won't get until you check it out for yourself. So come on out and see what Charlotte is laughing about. Our shows are still only $12 and we give you at least $52.75 worth of laughter in every show. That's a bargain.
