Edinburgh Fringe 2018: Comedy Special
Scottish Comedian of the Year finalist Chris Henry returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to take you on a whirlwind global gigglefest as he attempts to find ‘The One’.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Chris for some time and the energy and passion he has put into each of these shows is phenomenal. I can bet you this is one of the shows to watch this Edinburgh Fringe. Charismatic and very funny. You have to make a date with this one.

Around the World in 80 Dates
After sold-out, award-nominated performances around the world, this 40-year-old bachelor delivers the ultimate anti rom-com by hilariously dissecting our favourite clichés with razor sharp stand up. Replacing them with 80 dates he hopes will take him from reformed playboy to the perfect husband. Prepare for a blind date like no other.
Chris’ refreshingly unpretentious, honest comedy (with a little nonsense thrown in) has catapulted him to being an incredibly in-demand stand up. Performing at home in Scotland and across the UK, as well as touring internationally. Before his arrival at the 2018 Fringe, Chris will have performed in over 15 countries as far afield as America, Australia, Singapore and Cambodia.
Chris has appeared on a number of TV and radio shows in Scotland including BBC Radio Scotland’s MacAuley and Co, STV’s Late Late Show and BBC Scotland’s River City.
2017 saw the debut of two new concepts that took the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm – F**K Tinder (the only comedy event exclusively for single people) and Balloonatics (the family friendly comedy show for anyone crazy about balloons). Both shows sold out their respective Edinburgh Fringe runs. Chris continues to tour them around the UK and abroad in 2018.

People say write about what you know. So I did. I founded Broke Girl in the City – a smart girl’s guide to leading a fabulous lifestyle on a budget! A career spanning entertainment, bars & nightclubs (and frequenting them), film, music and TV, there isn’t much I don’t know about how to have fun in the city when completely broke.
