Join the legendary comedy ensembles of the Charlotte Comedy Theater as they continue their 20-year history of amusing Charlotte audiences! Each Friday & Saturday night, a different and highly skilled ensemble takes the stage to create completely improvised comedy content based on the audience's suggestions. Stand-up shows are presented by Don Garret on the second Friday of every month starting February 2022. Sketch shows will be added to our show offerings sometime in 2022. All shows are $15 via Eventbrite or at the door via Venmo (payCCT). Reservations are highly suggested as seating is limited and we often sell out.
We accept donations and tips for cast members via Venmo at PayCCT.
Trigger warning - These are very polarized times, & we are improv comedians working off of audience suggestions, which means we have no idea what we or our audience might say. We believe that by laughing together at the world we live in, we can contribute to the healing of our community. We are not here to argue politics but to use humor as a salve for our collectively traumatized spirits. If you want or need a good, hearty, belly laugh, come on out, we got you!
