Don’t miss Lenny nights

New book and new tour see Lenny Henry delivering his distinct and time honoured brand of comedy

LENNY HENRY: On the road doing funny business

THE LEGENDARY Sir Lenny Henry is officially on the road on a brand new UK tour set to run throughout the autumn. 

Following the October publication of his memoir, Henry will travel the length, breadth and width of the country with An Evening with Lenny Henry – Who Am I, Again?, which opened up in Birmingham last month. 

In part one of the show, Henry takes the audience through a jam session of stories both funny and sad  – triggered when writing his memoir – from growing up in the Black Country, puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and unashamed racism.

With his mother’s mantra of ‘H’integration’ echoing in his ears, Henry will recount setting out on his roller coaster ride of a career – but at every stage wondering: Am I good enough? Is this what they want?

In part two, Henry is interviewed by author, co-writer and friend Jon Canter, for further insights into his life and career, followed by questions from the audience.

Henry said: “I’m looking forward to travelling around and telling these stories. Writing the book was a huge feat and I’m very proud of it – I can’t wait to share more stories and fun about growing up in the Midlands, my early days in the clubs, pubs and discotheques and of course working on Tiswas, Three of a Kind and The Lenny Henry Show.

“The show promises to be an evening of memories, laughter and fun – I can’t wait to get started.”

New book, new tour, Lenny Henry set to wow fans with his time honoured brand of comedy

Henry has been a comedian since the age of 16. He has risen from being a cult star on children’s television to one of Britain’s best-known and most celebrated comedians, as well as a writer, radio DJ, TV presenter, co-founder of Comic Relief, and an award-winning actor. Henry has a PhD in Media Arts, and in 2015 was awarded a knighthood for services to charity and drama. 

Tour organisers have implored all fans to come and enjoy these honest and tender stories, told with a glorious sense of humour and help Henry figure out ‘Who Am I Again?’ Tickets are on sale now.
