Chris Henry: Around The World In 80 Dates (Chris Henry)

By | Published on Friday 24 August 2018

It’s around the room in 80 jokes. In an effort to create “a balanced relationship”, Henry makes the first ten minutes all about the audience, delving into our personal circumstances. His bantering with the crowd is impressive but, like many online profiles, this show isn’t quite as advertised. The “80 dates” in the title is more a list of ideas for dates he’d like to go on, while the rest of the show reappraises rom-coms, considers dating apps and offers insights into his last relationship. Some of the show could even be regarded as an advertisement for himself, as he appeals to the audience for their company. If you’re looking for a fun and frothy show, this could be The One.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
