Who we are

We are the Chapel Hill Players (CHiPs). We have been performing sketch comedy and improv at UNC Chapel Hill and beyond since we were founded in 1995. CHiPs is an entirely student-run organization, with our own incubator training group. Our shows consist of short form improv games, written sketches, and varying long form improv styles. Alumni from CHiPs have gone to the Upright Citizens Brigade, Improv Olympic, Second City, Magnet Theater, and comedy-focused careers. 

In 2011, CHiPs received the Improvisation News INNY award for “Best In College Improv” in the nation!

Audition Process

We have auditions at the beginning of every semester, which are open to UNC undergraduate students.  Auditions are fun, and no experience is needed to audition. When you audition for CHiPs, you are auditioning for our incubator training program. After honing your skills on CHiPs INCs, you have the opportunity to audition to CHiPs proper, our performing troupe.
