From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 30 September 2014

Bobby Henline is an Iraq War veteran and burn survivor who's become a comedian, incorporating his horrific injuries into his stand-up routine. Bobby was serving in his fourth tour in Iraq in 2007 when his humvee was hit by a roadside bomb just north of Bagdad. He was the only survivor of the five men in the vehicle. More than 38 per cent of his body was burned, his head burned to the skull. He speaks with Kathryn about healing through humour.
