Lenny Henry has risen from being a cult star on children’s television to being one of Britain’s best known and loved personalities – who has had a crucial influence on the creation of black-centred comedy and characters. His character creations range from Brixton’s favourite wideboy Delbert Wilkins to the one-man ‘sex machine’ Theophilus P. Wildebeeste and the Guinness supping Grandpa Deakus. Lenny and his various characters appeal across all classes, creeds and age groups. Lenny was awarded the Lifetime Achievement – Performance Award at the 2003 British Comedy Awards. His latest shows include BBC’s Lenny’s Britain and Lenny’s Perfect Night In. He also had a sell out National tour in 2007 with his one man show, “Where You From” and continues to be a highly popular choice for corporate events.
” Lenny was fabulous. The feedback has been great, he was friendly, approachable, professional, but added his own humour and personality to the night too. ”
