WKM Review: Fully Made Up

We were recently invited to the fabulous Butterfly Club to check out opening night of Fully Made Up – An Improvised Cabaret, starring multi-award winning comedian Jenny Wynter.

Combining cabaret, comedy and improv, this performance brings to life a veteran cabaret starlet, who’s entertaining evening soiree is entirely comprised of stories, songs, memories and monologues – inspired (in true improv style) by the suggestions of the audience.

Improv alone is hard enough, but throw in the added challenge of creating an on-the-spot, rhyming, reasonably relevant show tune to random suggestions like ‘squid’, ‘grapes’ and ‘eat the frog’ and you’ve got yourself a pretty darn entertaining premise.

Slipping just once, with real class and a super quick redirection, Jenny absolutely nails her latest show in a satin draped display of raw, fabulous singing, silly monologues and general awesomeness.

We would have loved a few more songs and less monologue in the first half of the show, as this woman sure can sing, but overall we loved the show, and laughed the whole way through.

An enviously quick mind, amazing, raw voice, fabulous humour and warm, wonderful talent – get along and check this show out before it wraps up on Sunday.

Check out some of Jenny’s earlier work here.
