Local Comedians Improvise Their Way to an Award
Written by Chris Harris on April 2, 2020
A group of comedians, including Northampton-based comics Jen Kenny and Donna Scott, have won “Best Kids Show” for their improvised play, The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen.
The Leicester Comedy Festival Awards highlighted comedians who had shows at the Leicester Comedy Festival back in February, and took place earlier this week over Skype, allowing all those nominated to still receive awards despite the physical awards evening being cancelled.
The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen features the Baron and a group of pirates, adventurers and inventors going on a time-travelling quest using only audience suggestions to guide the storytelling, such as time period, machines for the inventors, monsters and all sorts of wacky scenarios.
Chris spoke to Jen and Donna on Undiscovered Northampton about the awards, their comedy career and the play.
