EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we see the legendary Lenny Henry, comedian extraordinaire, letting loose and having a blast in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk back in June 1978. Known for his incredible talent and infectious humor, Sir Lenworth George Henry has left an indelible mark on British comedy. Born on August 29th, 1958, Lenny Henry is not only a stand-up comedian but also an accomplished actor, singer, writer, and television presenter. He co-founded the renowned charity Comic Relief and has graced our screens with his comedic genius through various programs like Chef! and The Magicians on BBC One. Lenny's journey to stardom began when he won the New Faces talent show in 1975 with his spot-on impersonation of Stevie Wonder. The following year marked another milestone as he appeared alongside Norman Beaton in Britain's first comedy series featuring predominantly black performers called The Fosters. Before reaching fame's pinnacle, Lenny honed his craft performing at working men's clubs where he skillfully impersonated white characters such as Frank Spencer from Some Mothers Do Ave Em (a character he famously portrayed on New Faces). His undeniable talent led him to make memorable guest appearances on popular shows like Celebrity Squares, Seaside Special, and The Ronnie Corbett Show. This remarkable picture captures Lenny Henry during one of those unforgettable moments that showcase his vibrant personality and contagious laughter. Taken around June 1st in 1978 by Ian Spratt from Memory Lane Prints - it serves as a timeless reminder of the joyous spirit that has made Lenny Henry an icon of British comedy for decades.
