A perfectly nonsensical family-friendly storytelling comedy show, The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen is brought to the stage by Nigel Lovell, creator, curator and compere of the hit Edinburgh fringe show Worst Show on the Fringe as featured on BBC2’s Edinburgh Nights with Sue Perkins and is described as “one of the most original and innovative show concepts at the fringe” by BBC Radio.
This exciting new concept show features award-winning comedians and improvisers who are challenged by one another to invent outrageously exaggerated swashbuckling stories based on the The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. All they have is their wits, some silly hats and the suggestions of an audience full of giggling children (and their grown-ups) to ensure that all ends happily ever after.
The show promises swords and duels, elephants and castles built of cheese, and all of it is completely and irrefutably true (and made up on the spot). The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen will delight adults and children alike with its wonderful joie de vivre and other pretentious words.
The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen runs from the 12th – 16th February at Exchange.
