Lenny Henry

Lenny Henry (born August 29, 1958), is a British entertainer.

Lenny Henry was born in Dudley[?], West Midlands. His earliest TV appearances were on a talent show in the 1970s. As a young black man doing impersonations of white celebrities he would have been something of a novelty at the time. Subsequently he was a comedy performer on The Black and White Minstrel Show. Later he appeared on the children's programme Tiswas and subsequently the show Three of a Kind with comedians Tracey Ullman and David Copperfield[?]. He followed this with his own self-titled show, which has appeared in variant forms ever since. He was also a member of The Comic Strip.

Lenny Henry is perhaps best known to modern audiences as the choleric[?] chef[?] of the comedic 1990s television series Chef![?]. In 1999 he also had a successful straight-acting lead role in the BBC drama Hope And Glory.

Lenny Henry is married to comedy actress Dawn French[?].

He is also one of the main celebrities associated with the Comic Relief charity organisation.
