IMPROVE CHARLOTTE CHARLOTTE ART LEAGUE

 

Improv Charlotte is coming to CAL! Every 3rd Saturday, join us at 8pm for the best comedy in town!

Improv Charlotte’s mission is to serve our community through comedy by creating inclusive, family-friendly improv that benefits our neighbors throughout the Charlotte area. Our dedicated team of improvisers use our comedic gifts to bring joy to our fellow humans through both interactive and entertaining performances as well as supporting local charity organizations.
We believe it’s more challenging and therefore more rewarding to create clean comedy that is both intellectually satisfying and laugh-out-loud funny.

Our shows consist of both short and long form improvisation. Nothing is scripted or rehearsed. Everything we do is made up on the spot and inspired by your suggestions.

Next show: Saturday November 19 Doors Open 7:30pm; Show Starts at 8:00pm

Admission: $10
