Henry Wilkinson: See Me at Lunch is an hour-long, one-man, hyper-immersive, character comedy extravaganza. Based on Wilkinson’s experience at school and as a trainee teacher, the show shines a nostalgic spotlight on some of the unsung heroes of the British schooling system. Across the hour, you will be sent back to the classroom to relive your childhood and meet some of the teachers everyone was taught by. Lessons about Oxbow Lakes, assemblies on the dangers of leaning back on chairs, wet play... it's all here! Previous praise for the performer: ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). ***** (TheTab.com).

Went to see Henry's show as we had seen him at Cambridge footlights show and we certainly were not disappointed. His See Me at Lunch show was hilarious, very cleverly written and executed and the right amount of audience participation. On the day we went there was only a small audience which was a shame as the room should have been packed, however it did feel like Henry made a connection with us a bit more than perhaps could be achieved with a larger audience. Having said that I would definitely recommend going to see this show, it was awesome!

This show really made me laugh and I can’t say that for many . Please may we have “ See me at detention “ next year ..please !

What an outstanding show. Very cleverly written and characters played very wittily executed. This man will go far. I think the timing of the show at 12:30 was a shame as should’ve been a filled audience. If you missed it then make sure you don’t next year.

There were just 11 of us but it was a great show! Very funny and lots of interaction. Well done Henry for being a real pro brimming with talent.

Had small audience but didn’t short change us. A very funny interactive show. Went as seen at Cambridge footlights show and we weren’t disappointed.

this show was very funny and highly entertaining. if you have any fear of being asked to participate do not go - he involves many members of the audience - virtually to the point of humiliation... exactly as it felt when you were in school :)
all characters were good - some just better than others - so make sure you've done your homework before you get to school !

The transitions could’ve been slicker, and some of the jokes miss their mark a little, but I have to say the concept is so clever and I was weeping with laughter at the sketch about James the boy who swung on his chair. Well worth seeing if you’ve got an hour as it’s free and good for a few laughs!!

A fun interactive show. Henry was full of energy and very funny. Involved the audience well. He has a lot of talent and will hopefully have a great future!

Loved See me at lunch! 5 stars!

Loved all the different characters and great audience participation. Wilkinson is effortlessly funny and very likeable. And the whole school settings is just so relatable. You won't regret seeing this show!

great show, great energy, great confidence and a lot of fun to watch: none of the sketches falls flat and he knows how to work a room very well . A really worth while watch and a brilliant way to spend lunchtime

Pretty awful, they struggled to keep it going for the hour. Audience seemed to be mostly his posh mates, which maybe made it worse as they were hamming it up in the audience participation bits.

The premise of the show does have potential, just think the performers ego meant he thought he didn't need to try too hard.

This was absolutely hilarious, a fun interactive experience with never a dull moment. Go and see it, you won't regret it!
