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.

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed the show. It's not a big area so I would recommend buying your tickets early. While it is small, that is part of what makes it so great. By the time you leave the show, you feel connected to the cast and other show attendees. This is a must do in Myrtle Beach. The next... More

We went to the adult only show on Friday and it was lots of laughs. The scenes were fun, the actors witty, and the pacing was good. I definitely recommend it and I plan to go back next time I'm visiting Myrtle Beach.

My husband and I went last night to Caroline improv. This was our second time, we went last January also. Tickets are $15 or less for a 90 minute show. They serve beer, wine, water and soda. I don't think I stopped laughing for almost the entire 90 minutes! These comedians love their job and they do a fantastic job... More

We have lived in Myrtle beach for 2 years and never knew Carolina Improv was here, my daughter from CT was visiting and found it! We went and had some great laughs! The cast was funny and the improv was even funnier. It was a different kind of show that I have ever been to but I will go back!... More

I had never seen an improv performance before, and I didn't know what to expect. I was daunted by the small theater (accommodates about 25-30 audience members) located in the mall. However, the performance was professional, witty, and hilarious. It was an enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend it.

This was my first live improv experience, and being a fan of Whose Line is it Anyways, I had to check it out. I have to say that I enjoyed myself, and got some good laughs. I would definitely recommend this to other families. They also give classes on how to do improv, which kind of bums me out as... More

If you want a fantastic, intimate and entertaining evening, you would be hard pressed to find a better place in the Grand Strand. The improv troop at Carolina Improve is witty, sharp, edgy and quick, and they will almost certainly leave you wanting more. Family nights are great as well, especially if you have young kids. We brought our 5... More

It was our first time at a live improve. We had a great time. The players mixed well with the audience and had them responding back in no time. Every time they asked for suggestions and we gave them different senarios it was definitely a hoot. At the end of the show all the players met with us to say... More

First time at a "live" improv show. It was a clean, hilarious adult show. Would recomend this to anyone who wants a good hearty and healthy laugh. We were graciously greeted as we walked in. At the beginning of the show, Jan asked every row where they were from, had a nice personal touch to it. The audience was asked... More
