SIR Lenny Henry is bringing his new show, based on his memoir, to Bradford. Called An Evening with Lenny Henry - Who Am I, Again?, the show is at St George’s Hall on November 5.

In part one, Lenny takes the audience through a 'jam session of stories', triggered when writing his memoir, of growing up in the Black Country, puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and racism, and setting out on his showbiz career, wondering at every stage: 'Am I good enough? Is this what they want?'

In part two he will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Jon Canter, followed by questions from the audience.

Starting as a comic aged 16, Lenny rose from cult star on children's television to become one of Britain's best-known and most celebrated comedians, as well as a writer, radio DJ, award-winning actor and co-founder of Comic Relief.

“Writing the book was a huge feat and I'm very proud of it. I can’t wait to share more stories about growing up in the Midlands, my early days in the pubs, clubs and discotheques, working on Tiswas, Three of a Kind and The Lenny Henry Show," he said.
