Fresh from itís 14 night debut in Australia, and a sold out performance at the Glasgow Comedy Festival, this will be of Henryís biggest Fringe yet with his brand new show 'Chris World'.

The formula for happiness never worked for him. The car, the relationship, the home, the holidays, Chris has none of them and wants to stop judging him about it.

'interesting, enjoyably candid, compelling, honest, truthful, even daring show.' (Chortle)

'He was good. He was very good. In fact, he was exceptional.' (Evening Express)

Chris Henry: Chris' World
Chris Henry is a frantic comic. He bounces around the stage like pinball thatís taken a lot of MDMA. Occasionally he giggles manically before launching into his next comedy rant or tale of ineptitude and judgmental friends. However, Iím aware that Iím judging him by his appearance and this is what his show is all about. Henry has been judged his whole life for the decisions heís made and the way he currently lives his life but heís not bitter. In fact, Henry wants us to understand him intimately and isnít afraid to share. Heís bloody likeable and, although some of his show feels like spoken word rather than stand up, itís undeniably entertaining and the audience warms to his buzzy banter.

Henry loves his life and hopes that you find the way to love yours too. As long as we let him keep being the centre of attention.
Sharing stories of broken hearts and dreams, disappointing parents and compromising webcam chats alongside some blunt admissions of what keeps him so perky, Henry is a true performer. His material flits around and heís not afraid to Ďgo thereí but Henry never punches down because you get the impression that he just wants everyone to get along.

Itís standing room only in the large space at the Three Sisters and Henry regularly engages the crowd with questions and requests to reenforce his opinions of the awesomeness of being single, childless and doing a job you love. Some of his statements on parenting elicit groans of recognition from the proper grown-ups in the room but Henry takes this as suitable validation of his stance that parenthood isnít for him.

It takes a brave comedian to stand on stage and tell the majority of the audience how much better your life is than theirs but itís done it with a boyish enthusiasm that never comes off as arrogance. Henry loves his life and hopes that you find the way to love yours too. As long as we let him keep being the centre of attention.
