Henry Paker: Man Alive 

Star of Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, Josh (BBC3) and co-writer and star of Radio 4’s ‘Small Scenes’, Henry’s latest show is a unique mixture of stand up comedy and illustration which took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm.

A delightfully twisty and turny hour in which Henry uses cartoons to tell a story about a lonely man who lives in a forest in a house full of clocks, alongside delivering stand up routines about marriage, commuting and dark chocolate. Somewhere between a graphic novel, a stand up show and a fairy tale.

‘An introvert’s fantasia….Paker exceeds your expectations in a wonderfully ingenious way’ **** The Times

‘A quirky, touching piece of comedy, clever enough to work on a number of levels which leave audience members each with a different favourite moment’ 4 stars – **** The Skinny

***** (5 stars) Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“A natural born comedian” Michael McIntyre.
