The Lenny Henry Show (2004)

Show Summary

This is Lenny's fifth self titled series in which he returns to his original 1984 format mix of stand-up, send-up and character based sketches. Music videos are back and Len' successfully pulls off promo video parodies of Beyoncé Knowles - Crazy In Love, Outkast - Hey Ya and, bizarrely enough, Kelis - Milkshake. New characters include Lister a Jamaican shopkeeper, Mr. Blackwell a rebellious nursing home resident, Rev. Carmicheal who tries his teach the younger generations about this "dude" called God "Big up, respect!" and the one and only Tanya (played by Gina Yashere). Look out also for a police drama spoof of CSI called 'forenSIC:UK'. All this is nicely topped off with Lenny's unique, but certainly not dated, stand-up style where he discusses current events, and the general bizarreness of life. He may have been doing this for thirty years now, but the humour remains as fresh as it was thirty minutes ago.

    The lenny henry show is smart and very very funny. The first episode I saw was from the recent 2004-2005 series. The show offers a list of hilarious characters with excellent catch phrases such as "I don't think so.." which will go down in catch phrase history. Lenny does all the sketches himself and the fake music videos are just fantastic. Overall the show is great and is one of the best English comedies around .So just sit back and prepare to laugh.moreless
