This show was going to be titled "I Used to Buy Meth From My Friends' Dad" but that would have meant leaving out all material about the other drugs, the sex dungeon, the dog food, and everything else in between. These true stories sound like lies because they are delivered to you by someone who looks like preschool teacher but sounds like she gives away quarters at a casino. This curated mess is tasteless and chronicles the life and times of Katharyn Henson, a woman with a penchant for hedonism but the work ethic and credit score of the most text book Capricorn. She is not a doctor, she is not a lawyer, but she is from Reno, Nevada, the Ivy league of desert trash, and where this story begins.

"Hilarious and intriguing. Katharyn brings her everything but ordinary life to the stage and had me in stitches. " - Joe Larson, America's Got Talent

"I laughed so hard, I forgot I was having an outbreak. ★★★★" - Chris from Brookyln, High Society Radio

"After watching Katharyn, I have never wanted to do meth more." - Maggie Lalley, Winner of Solocom Festival

"Katharyn routinely makes me look good when I book her on podcasts and she is even funnier & more surprising in person. Her show does not disappoint." - Mike Harrington, Producer at GaS Digital

August 16, 2019  The Skinny
A brazen hour of crazy anecdotes from Katharyn Henson in her Edinburgh Fringe debut.

As Katharyn Henson starts her hour with an anecdote about eating dog food as a child, we get a pretty quick sense of her wild and self-deprecating style, which somehow manages to build and build from there as the show goes on. She takes great pleasure in all things obscene and if you’re willing to go along with it, there’s plenty of laughs to be had as she pushes the limits of what the audience find tolerable.

Some audience members appear alienated by how full-frontal the set is from the get-go, but it certainly prepares the room for the hour ahead. However, Henson’s audience interaction stalls the momentum somewhat as her audience questioning rarely leads to interesting material, instead receiving awkward reactions from the selected participants.

There’s a lot of fun to be had over the hour, particularly if you prefer your comedy on the darker side. Henson covers a tremendous amount of ground with her vulgarity and free-spiritedness, making it the more enjoyable as she explores literally every nook and cranny, an analogy comparing coke to a board game being a real highlight. Click Here
