Lenny Henry announces UK tour

The legendary Sir Lenny Henry will embark on a brand new UK tour this autumn.  Following the October publication of his memoir, Lenny will travel the length, breadth and width of the country with An Evening with Lenny Henry – Who Am I, Again?, opening in Birmingham on 20 October.  Tickets go on-sale at 10am on Friday 17 May.

In part one of the show, Lenny will take 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, Lenny 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, 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. Come and enjoy these honest and tender stories, told with a glorious sense of humour and help Lenny figure out ‘Who Am I Again?’ 

Lenny 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.”

Lenny 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.  His autobiography, also entitled Who Am I, Again?, is published by Faber & Faber on 3 October 2019.
