“Wynter is a smart and well-versed performer with a likeability that can’t be taught…Jenny Wynter is, quite simply, wonderful.” Fringe Benefits.
“Taking the cake is Jenny’s improv skills, getting audience members on stage, finding out some of their personal details and improvising a song featuring them with some surprisingly good rhymes and lines; very impressive and highly entertaining. When a performer takes great enjoyment in delighting their audience, you know the show is going to be good.” Rip It Up Mag.
