Overview
More
Theatre 99 is Charleston's Home for Improv Comedy. It is not a comedy club as Trip Advisor has listed it as. It is a 130 seat theatre, not a club with tables. We specialize in improvisational comedy which is unscripted theatre. It makes for a very funny night. We just don't want users of Trip Advisor to come expecting stand up comics telling jokes on a microphone. Theatre 99 does host stand up comedy shows periodically, but our main focus is improve comedy on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. Thank you for supporting live performance!

Great time, especially if you're a fan of improv. Great for a night out if you're a local or a visitor. I look forward to going back soon!

The show was very funny. The comedians were creative, and the show went by quickly. The tickets were reasonably priced for the show; you definitely get your money's worth. We would go a couple of times a month, at least, if we lived here.

My only complaint is it ended too soon! I'm not sure I ever stopped laughing! So much fun and no pressure to buy anything. You can't beat the price for a memorable night out.

If you like "Who's line is it anyway", you will like this. The talent is amazing. They do sell drinks there which is nice. It's worth the visit.

Great price and great improv comedy! Best way to cap off a long day exploring downtown... I wouldnt recommend with young children, but for adults it was great!

Sorry I missed your question for 5 days. Rose, you might want to ask the Theatre 99 Venue or the management at your Seaside Inn. Uber could be an option.
