Lenny Henry

Lenny HenryT01948054476
Lenny Henry has become a crucial influence on the creation of black-centred comedy and characters. Born in Dudley, West Midlands in 1958, he says 'My family came to the UK at a time when blacks were just beginning to be integrated into British society. I was on of just three blacks in our school'. His first television exposure was as a comic on New Faces. He then when on to appear on Tiswas with Chris Tarrant who made a big impression on him. Lenny says: ' It was then that I began to develop my work..I remember going to the Comedy Store and realising that I didn't have to rely on impersonations so much and that I could be funnier by being myself'. Following Tiswas, he appeared on Three of a Kind with Tracey Ullman and David Copperfield. It ran for three years on BBC TV and Lenny's introduction to large television audiences. He has gone on to appear on many different television shows, talking on a range of characters as well as hosting the highly successful The Lenny Henry Show.

So Much Things to Say

This one-man comedy show tackles parents, children, love, sex, war (huh, what is it good for; absolutely nothing, say it again...) and Sixties Ska music. It's a rip roaring tour de force of character comedy, brought to you by the man himself...Lenny Henry.
