Jenny Wynter's "Unexpected!" Variety Show
Cancelled Show - On Thursday 21st January, in the true spirit of the unexpected, Jenny was involved in a head-on collision when an old dude forgot that giving way isn't just a suggestion. The bad news is that she has been forced to cancel her 2010 show. The good news is this twist of fate will no doubt provide even more fodder when she plans to bring the show back in 2011.
Jenny Wynter really shouldn't even be here. At 22, she had visions of her prime years to live carefree, back-packing through Europe and exploring fabulous career options. Instead, she found herself single, broke, jobless and...pregnant.
Eight years, three children, two ski seasons in Canada and a career change into comedy later, and here she is.
This solo variety show combines stand-up, cabaret, storytelling, musical, improvised and character comedy with a deeply personal story about adventures in the unexpected.
