An Evening with Lenny Henry: Who Am I Again?

Event Date: Tues 12 November 2019 - 7.30pm

Enjoy a jam session with one of the country’s most celebrated comedians this autumn.

Legendary Sir Lenny Henry is embarking on a brand new UK tour this autumn. Kicking off on 20 October 2019 at Birmingham’s Hippodrome, he’ll make appearances throughout the country – including stops at Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre and Blackpool Opera House – before wrapping up on 29 November 2019 at Stoke’s Regent Theatre.

Entitled An Evening with Lenny Henry: Who Am I, Again?, he’ll be taking audiences through a jam session of funny and sad memories – from growing up in the Black Country to puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and unashamed racism. With his mother’s mantra of “H’integration” echoing in his ears, Lenny will recount setting out on his rollercoaster ride of a career – but at every stage wondering: “Am I good enough? Is this what they want?”

In part two, Lenny will be interviewed by friend, broadcaster and author Jon Canter for further insights into his life and career, followed by questions from the audience.

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