Edinburgh Fringe Run And Tour For TikTok Star Henry Rowley

Edinburgh Fringe Run And Tour For TikTok Star Henry Rowley

Edinburgh, and the rest of the UK and Ireland, get ready for the ‘undeniably talented, undeniably funny’ (Tatler) Henry Rowley to make his debut hour at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his show Just Literally at the Pleasance Courtyard - Beside from 1st - 26th August 2024. Following this, Henry will embark upon his debut UK & Ireland live tour which kicks off at the Exeter Corn Exchange on 16th October before concluding at Richmond Theatre on 29th November.

Tickets for Henry’s live tour has a Ticketmaster pre-sale going live at 10am on Wednesday 15th May with general on sale taking place from 10am Thursday 16th May here. Henry’s Edinburgh Fringe run is on sale now.

It’s disappointing enough having a TikToker for a son; can a comedy show be any more disappointing to Henry’s parents? Yes it can. Because even though he is ‘excellent company’ (Tatler) he didn’t exactly follow in his parent’s footsteps… When a GP and a therapist love each other very much… they spawn a ‘TikTok comedy darling’ (Tatler). 

Henry Rowley is a rising star captivating audiences with his unique blend of humour, creativity, and relatable content. With a knack for comedic timing and engaging storytelling, Rowley has amassed a large following - as a performer Henry is infectious and has carved out a niche and unique comedy style. Displaying a wide range of character comedy in his debut hour, Henry is ready to show why he is poised to become, not only an online sensation, but a force in the comedy world - This Fringe his beloved, and new!, characters from his ‘wildly popular sketches’ (Time Out) will be revealed  to a new audience whilst his fans will get to see his more theatrical side. 

Henry said: “So apparently spending all day filming myself and posting it on social media didn’t quite fill that empty void in my soul so I’ve decided to try and get even more attention and piss my parents off even more by travelling the UK and Ireland performing my brand new show of character sketch comedy and stand up. If you don’t come, I’ll cry.” 

Online comedy sensation (and more importantly, English Literature graduate) Henry Rowley, who in nearly three years has amassed 450k Instagram followers, 1.3M TikTok followers and 72.2M likes, makes his highly anticipated Edinburgh debut - join this Gen Z internet twat and ‘masterclass in observational humour’ (Tatler) for an hour of fast paced character sketch comedy. 

Through his growing collection of skits and impressions, Henry presents characters with which we are all, unfortunately, slightly too familiar with and he has since formed a loyal fan base; from uncomfortable POV videos of 'the Soho House guy' to 'the music guy at afters', he paints a hilarious and accurate picture of social interactions. After a youth spent in multiple theatre productions, Henry has performed on stage at the Curve Theatre in Leicester and at the Drayton Arms Theatre with ‘My Neighbours are Kinda Weird’ which was brought to the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival for a successful 2-week run. With his experience in acting, Henry is continuing to pursue theatre and on-screen comedy roles.

Henry made his debut into the world of stand-up comedy in August 2023 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the creator-led showcase entitled ‘Knock Knock’. This year he will be back, taking his first solo hour-long comedy show to the Pleasance Courtyard. Henry also hosts his monthly comedy show: ‘Henry Rowley & Friends’ at 2Northdown in Kings Cross.
