In the mood for laughs but looking for something more innovative than the traditional stand-up routines on offer at The Comedy Zone? Head over to the Charlotte Comedy Theatre for an entirely different experience. The theatre is home to Charlotte's very own company of improv specialists. Rather than delivering overly rehearsed bits, these entertainers start from scratch every time. No rehearsal at all! Audience members are often invited to supply a situation or a buzzword, and then off the players go, making them roar with completely improvised comedy. Drinks are supplied by Joe's Raw Bar right next door. See website for details on weekly improv lessons, as well as a complete calendar of events.
