Uncle Henry’s Happy Hour (Tom Hensby / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

If you do not like audience interaction then you should steer clear of ‘Uncle Henry’s Happy Hour’ – it doesn’t matter whether you are seated in the front, squished in the middle of an aisle or hiding in the back row, Uncle Henry definitely loves to include the audience. Tom Hensby is Uncle Henry, a seedy, get-rich-quick conman who wants to help the audience become millionaires. Some of the different ideas and schemes were hilarious and whilst others weren’t – but the fact that they weren’t was funny in itself. Hensby invites a guest performer each night and unfortunately ours, Caroline Hardie, wasn’t as entertaining as our host. Although a little bit silly, Uncle Henry provides simple humour that will start off your evening with merriment.

The Dram House, until 25 Aug, 10.15pm.
