Lenny Henry is one of the most famous faces on television — appealing to both young and old alike.

Born in Dudley, West Midlands, to Jamaican parents, the young Lenny first attracted attention amongst his school contemporaries with his uncanny abilities as a mimic.

His impressions ranged from Tommy Cooper and Frank Spencer to Muhammad Ali, and in 1975 these talents won him a place on TV’s New Faces, the show which was to launch his career.

What drives the man behind Theophilus P. Wildebeest?

Who is this man with a unique talent with a quicksilver appreciation of what it takes to tickle the contemporary British funny-bone?

The first ever biography of one of the best loved men in British comedy looks at Lenny’s indomitable Jamaican mother, his early apprenticeship in the working men’s clubs, his adoption by the alternative comedy circuit and his marriage to Dawn French.

Jonathan Margolis charts that career. It is both an in-depth chronology of Lenny Henry’s career, and a fascinating look at the man behind the laughter.

Praise for Lenny Henry: A Biography

‘The great joy of Margolis’s book is the detailed research that has gone into every stage of Henrys life’ - Time Out

‘[Henry] emerges as a dauntingly talented performer, but one whose full potential as an actor and comedian remains untapped’ - Daily Express

Jonathan Margolis is a journalist and author who writes for the Sunday Times, The Financial Times and The Guardian. He has been a European contributor to Time magazine and is known for his biographies and historical books including Cleese Encounters, The Big Yin, Bernard Manning and A Brief History of Tomorrow.

Same as every other ac-tor these days. Too much pedestal strutting politically correct bullsh*t. I went off him massively in last few years. He's no different from the rest - full of hypocrisy and wanting to impress the even more hypocritical corrupt types who got to control BBC etc through THEIR similar minded pals.
He's no worse, and no better than the rest.
But listening to one of them - whether it's Cumberbatch or Henry on their high horse is more than enough

Lenny never made it to the top as a comedian i.m.h.o, his jokes were too clean, never heard any swearing in his jokes or sex talk, instead of grabbing his throat he should have grabbed his crotch . If he were to make a comeback and do dirty jokes fans would be on him like flies on honey.

Ah, the comedian who founded Comic Relief, the charity which has gone on to be a yearly event. He's done very well for himself. Clearly a national treasure.

Listen Hooray henry ( who gave you a name like that? I much prefer the name Donald Tramp) Lenny has made more people laugh than you have convincing people its not a hornet's nest you have under that the wig which seems ready to blow of as soon as there is a breeze. For a guy who has a lot of money try keeping that wig in place with double sided tape , plastic padding or even blue tack.

Now hold on Boz?/Baz
How do you work out he is a national treasure ? do people laugh at his jokes till when they get belly ache and can laugh no more and fall onto the floor comatosed ? no. Now if the P.M sent him to negotiate Breksit instead
of Boris and Lenny let rip with a new bunch of jokes which had them all laughing (yes even sourface Merkel) and the Germans and French said name your price , we will agree to anything you want then i would say he is a treasure.Trouble is you have some people calling the Queen a national treasure who should be buried Where does it end ?
