The Lenny Beige Variety Pack

Show Summary

The Lenny Beige Variety Pack is a late-night comedy variety show from the UK starring Lenny Beige, the alter ego of British comedian Steve Furst. The BBC broadcasts the show each weeknight and has Beige singing, performing sketch comedy, doing stand-up and mimicking celebrities in front of a live band. The set resembles a large comedy club and has a studio audience watching Beige and friends perform while sipping drinks at dark candlelit tables. The host uses sidekicks Phil Putner and Lulu McClatchy to help him do his routines. In one episode, Phil turns into the singer Kenny Smiles, who tries desperately to sing Jazz music. Unfortunately, Kenny is tone def. McClatchy portrays the Superfly Girl character on the show, and she helps make video clips to Beige's original songs, including "I Love Girls (But They Don't Love Me)" and "The One-Toothed Dental Assistant." At the beginning of each episode, the comedian host performs show music in place of a standard monologue.
