Kingdom Kids (Improv)

Kingdom Kids (Improv)

The Kingdom Kids were formed 70 years ago in the forests of Vermont, when Senator George Aiken bestowed upon a handful of rural counties the aspirational moniker of “The Northeast Kingdom.” These nymph-improvisers (or nymphrovisors) hibernated underground for several generations before emerging in the 1980s and 90s as adolescent comedians, forming an appreciation for nature, learning the importance of self-reliance and hard work, and being bullied by dumb jocks in such towns as Lyndonville, Sheffield and Newport. After a period of individual migration wherein the comedians reached relative maturity, they instinctively returned to the state – if not the Kingdom – of their birth, reuniting just as the Vermont Comedy Club was opened in the city of Burlington. Now that they are together above-ground, they perform regularly, and scientists believe that – having spent so much of their lifecycle in the NEK – these improvisers tap into a shared consciousness that allows them to read one another’s minds. One day many years from now, The Kingdom Kids will perform a set of improvised comedy that perfectly encapsulates the bittersweet nostalgia of growing up in a haven of Carhartts and chainsaws, drugstores and diners, and together they will turn to dust, fertilizing the soil of the Northeast Kingdom for generations of improvisers to come.

See the elusive Kingdom Kids create improvised comedy on the spot!

ABOUT THE KINGDOM KIDS

The Kingdom Kids (Natalie Miller, John Mathias, Nathan Hartswick, Brian De La Bruere) were formed 70 years ago in the forests of Vermont, when Senator George Aiken bestowed upon a handful of rural counties the aspirational moniker of "The Northeast Kingdom." These nymph-improvisers (or nymphrovisors) hibernated underground for several generations before emerging in the 1980s and 90s as adolescent comedians, forming an appreciation for nature, learning the importance of self-reliance and hard work, and being bullied by dumb jocks in such towns as Lyndonville, Sheffield and Newport.

After a period of individual migration wherein the comedians reached relative maturity, they instinctively returned to the state – if not the Kingdom – of their birth, reuniting just as the Vermont Comedy Club was opened in the city of Burlington.

Now that they are together above-ground, they perform regularly, and scientists believe that – having spent so much of their lifecycle in the NEK – these improvisers tap into a shared consciousness that allows them to read one another’s minds.

One day many years from now, The Kingdom Kids will perform a set of improvised comedy that perfectly encapsulates the bitteweet nostalgia of growing up in a haven of Carhartts and chainsaws, drugstores and diners, and together they will turn to dust, fertilizing the soil of the Northeast Kingdom for generations of improvisers to come.
