Henry Paker: Man Alive
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Henry found himself in a Travelodge, lunching on a can of John West Mediterranean Style Tuna Salad. A can of salad. His hopes were not high and yet, as he peeled back the lid, the unspeakable smell that hit his face, made him question two things, 1: the wisdom of buying lunch from a vending machine and 2: whether life was all it was cracked up to be. A show about expectation meeting reality, and it making you want to gag. Scales impressive comedy peaks throughout this entertainingly twisty solo hour **** (Guardian).
