Playground Performer Spotlight: Jenny Wright!

Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Performer Spotlight! Every so often, The Playground Theater likes to highlight a performer and give them a moment to talk about their time and feelings in comedy. This week, we’ve chosen to give the spotlight to Jenny Wright, a member of one of our Incubator teams-The Leftovers.

Q: What things have you been a part of at The Playground?

A: I have been a part of the Incubator Program, Fresh Meat, a few one-off performances, the Mosaic auditions, and Up Next sketch show.

Q: How long have you been performing?

A: I have been performing since high school and I’ve been performing comedy since college.

Q: What’s been your proudest moment doing comedy?

A: My proudest moment in comedy was my first performance in Chicago. It’s a whole bit about “unzipping your creative potential” and at the end of it I took my pants off in front of about 80 people.

Q: What upcoming shows do you have?

A: The Leftovers have a show the first Wednesday of each month at 8pm called “Fresh Meat”.

Come check out Jenny in The Leftovers at Fresh Meat TOMORROW (01/01/2020 at 8pm, pay what you can)!
