Who We Are

Failure Factory is an improv comedy training center based in Charlotte, NC.

We provide fun and engaging classes to help people at any experience level become more confident both onstage and in their everyday lives.

Classes and Workshops

At Failure Factory, we work hard to offer training courses that are as useful to both actors and non-actors.  We intentionally make each class small (12-14) so we can concentrate on personal feedback and strong teacher/student interaction.  Everyone can glean something valuable from the process.

Let’s face it – it’s hard to meet people in Charlotte. Failure Factory provides a unique means of engaging like-minded others, creating a vibrant community of hilarious people from vastly different backgrounds, skill sets, and personalities.
Out of work? Looking to bag your dream job? Continue building strong marketable skills and a well-rounded resume by trying a different approach: improvisational theatre. While some development courses might teach methods to better fake low confidence or poor presentation skills, improv uses proven techniques from the theatre to help you free up your creativity and confidence, and provides support as you identify and develop your own personal brand.
Failure Factory crosses academic boundaries to better understand why we do what we do, and how we can do it more effectively. Drawing from sources such as traditional and modern theatre, sociology, psychology, literature, anthropology, and more, we aren’t afraid to explore the cutting edge of what science and art has to offer.
