This podcast just makes me happy. Every guest has something special about them that tickles my brain. It’s a shame that it is going on hiatus, but if something is preventing the best quality improv from being spun, the hiatus makes sense, until that thing is resolved. Hope to hear from y’all again soon.

Fantastic Comedy!

I’ve been listening to this show from the first episode and haven’t looked back since. Almost all of the episodes are absolutely genius and hilarious. I love the chemistry of the improvisers and I love their sense of humor. I replay old episodes while waiting for the next one to come out! Give it a listen!

If You’re Looking for a Podcast to Make You Laugh….

….then look no further than Alchemy This. Seriously. Three years ago I listened to a random episode when I was looking for a new comedy podcast and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Every episode is packed with brilliant improv, hilariously weird scenes, and laugh-out-loud-in-public humor. Without exception, every one of the regular and guest Alchemists are extraordinarily talented and bring their own unique flavor to whatever scene they’re in. Every time I think I’ve landed on a favorite Alchemist, it changes in the next episode. They’re all the best and I love them and this podcast and you will too.
