BBC One has just announced Lenny Henry's `Rudy's Rare Records' pilot episode for 2015. The show which started on R4 transferred to theatre this month and will run at the Birmingham Rep until 20th September followed by London Hackney Empire on 24th.  Reviews have been very positive, including Dominic Cavendish describing it as a "wonderful, funny, humane, live reggae-saturated " show.

 

The date for the pilot release has not been set but will follow in 2015.

 

In addition to his acting and presenting, Lenny continues to be a very popular comedy host and stand up comedian for corporate events and award evenings.  Lenny was described by the British Council of Shopping Centres as, "The finest entertainment our conference has ever had."
