Overview

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.

Thanks for your feedback. We apologize for your experience. Our Whose Beach Is It Anyway show IS our regular improv show. And since it's based on audience suggestions, we may not always receive Myrtle Beach themed suggestions. Do you recall what night you attended? And...More

The holiday themed show is as entertaining as the regular performances. The audience participation coupled with the talented cast, especially Petra, Pat, Allen, & Carlos was hilarious! We will attend again!

The cast was awesome. The audience was fun with creative ideas for the cast. The venue was small which made the performance much more personal and staff got everyone involved(verbal ideas mostly). Strongly recommend. Great show at a very reasonable price. There are 18+ and...More

I wasn't sure what to expect but our family is a big fan of 'Whose line is it anyway?' so we had to give this a try. Hard to compare anyone to the brilliant comics on the TV show, but the actors were wonderfully spirited...More

Cant blame it all on the cast, the audience gave some pretty weird ideas. The second half of the show was much better than the first and the price was right! We had a birthday celebration and they made us feel special:)

No, just drinks, including beer and wine. They are a bit pricey on the drinks

Depends on what show and what night. All of our shows are posted on our website. We're not allowed to post the link here. They run about 90-100 minutes.
