EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to June 1978 in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, where the legendary Lenny Henry is seen having a delightful time. Known for his incredible talent as a stand-up comedian, actor, singer, writer, and television presenter, Sir Lenworth George Henry has left an indelible mark on British entertainment. As one of the co-founders of the renowned charity Comic Relief and the host of various television programs like "Chef!" and "The Magicians" on BBC One, Lenny Henry's contributions to the industry have been immense. However, this image takes us back to his early days when he first burst onto our screens. Having won the New Faces talent show in 1975 with an unforgettable impersonation of Stevie Wonder, Lenny quickly became a household name. The following year saw him starring alongside Norman Beaton in "The Fosters". Britain's pioneering comedy series featuring predominantly black performers. Before achieving fame on television screens across the nation, Lenny honed his craft in working men's clubs where he skillfully impersonated white characters such as Frank Spencer from "Some Mothers Do Ave Em". His versatility shone through even then. This photograph captures a moment frozen in time - circa June 1st 1978 - showcasing Lenny Henry enjoying himself at Great Yarmouth. It serves as a reminder of his journey from those humble beginnings to becoming an icon within British comedy. Preserved by Ian Spratt at Memory Lane Prints with utmost care and attention to detail; this picture allows us to appreciate not only Lenny Henry's infectious humor but also his significant contribution to shaping British entertainment history.
