Chris Henry at the 2009 Scottish Comedian Of The Year final

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Chris Henry starts with unremarkable jibes about teenage pregnancies and neds who wear tracksuits but have never been to the gym. Similarly, comments about unwanted old friends tracking you down on Facebook may be true, but need a punchline.

Henry isn’t particularly likeable, either, and not in a comedically good way. He seems bitter when he moans about other people’s children, boastful when he references his youthful girlfriend, and just plain tedious when he dusts down that hoary old subject of women remembering every previous argument before ending with some gratuitous masturbation material. Enough already.
