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' 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'. .

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. 

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."

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.
