Henry Ginsberg is not your standard everyman. He's an anxiety riddled, emotionally unstable, jaded romanticist who took up stand-up comedy aged 18 instead of going to uni, and who managed to remain a virgin well into his late 20s. Chances are he's not what you imagine when you think of a "real man".

In a reprise of last year's show, Henry explores toxic masculinity, sexual shame and self image, along with his trademark themes of mental unrest, loneliness and spunk.

"Henry Ginsberg, who was last week in the televised final of the FHM Stand-Up Hero competition, cuts a more unusual figure, and successfully mines his outsider status for a delightfully offbeat set, hinting at emotional bleakness -– but in a fun way. Even such nouveau hack subjects as rape and paedophilia are approached from a fresh angle, niftily playing on his inner demons rather than going for straightforward shock value. More please." - Chortle

"Henry Ginsberg was just phenominal. You wanted to listen to him, you wanted to hang out with him. Very funny." - Ben Wilson - FHM

"The warmest act of the night was Henry Ginsberg. It was by far the most intimate performance. He gave more of himself than all of the other acts combined." - Andrew Maxwell
