Chris Henry started his career in entertainment as a Butlins Red Coat, until he packed it in after six years discovering that he couldn’t sing or dance. That old-school no-nonsense/all-nonsense influence has bled through into his style of stand-up, which is refreshingly unpretentious and focused-on-the-funny. Leaving the caravan parks behind, he has become a headliner on the U.K. comedy circuit, dazzling clubs with his honest anecdotes and flirtacious observations that toe the line of decency with masterful control.

Chris was nominated for the Perth Fringe World comedy award in 2016 as part of the Best of the Scottish Comedian of the Year compilation, was a finalist in Scottish Comedian of the Year 2009 and has performed on BBC TV and radio.

Quotes from folks:

“interesting, enjoyably candid, compelling, honest,truthful, even daring show.”
“Most stand-up these days try to shock and most crowds are unshockable. Chris Henry doesn’t try that hard to shock, instead he talks about things we think we recognise and succeeds in giving you a bit of a fright you never see coming. More than that he’s personable, so when he twists your preconceptions on their head, you thank him for it. In a way, he hands you your nuts, and you smile.”
(Adam Brophy) , Columnist for the Irish Times
