Some of the best improv comedy in the South and certainly the best in the upstate area. Great shows, great venue, and super affordable. Check out a show some time.

Love spending my nights laughing at Coffee Underground. The Alchemy community is both welcoming and hilarious. I met someone in the audience that travels from Atlanta to see these shows-that speaks volumes about this great experience!
