Enter the dungeon. Kill the monsters. Take their stuff.
That’s the dungeon crawl.
Sounds easy – unless the fighter is more of a lover, the senile wizard can’t remember where he put his pants let alone his spellbook and the thief has decided it’s far easier to steal from a bunch of stupid adventurers than a dragon…
Ben McKenzie and Richard McKenzie invite you to join them for an hour as they take four unsuspecting souls on a Dungeon Crawl of their own.
The hottest improvisers, comedians and other special guests will fight, sneak and possibly dance their way through a fantasy adventure in which nothing is certain but danger, magic and cheap props. Dungeon Master Ben wields supreme power in presenting a world of imagination to our heroes, while Richard – with the help of the finest toys two dollars can buy – becomes the cast of villagers, guards, goblins and dragons they encounter. Dungeon Crawl is half role-playing game, half fantasy sit-com – but all about killing monsters and taking their stuff!
Dungeon Crawl is Ben and Richard’s second Dungeons & Dragons themed show, following the “underground critical hit” +1 Sword (‘hilariously geeky…I laughed so much my jaw hurt’ – Buzzcuts).
