Lenny Henry at the Warwick Arts Centre

Writing about web page http://www.lennyhenry.com/home/wheres_len.asp?pID=4

So, after 4 months of waiting (having bought the tickets in June) to see Lenny Henry at the Warwick Arts Centre, Friday was the day.

I've never been a huge fan of Lenny, but whenever I saw him on the TV, I liked what I saw and thought he was pretty good. So, I grabbed a couple of tickets a few months ago and thought I'd give it a go.

To get to the point, I was disappointed. The show was part of a new'ish tour with relatively new material and a slightly strange format of trying to tell a story, make us laugh and have a few political digs whilst he was at it.

I'm not saying he just wasn't at all funny, he was…at times I was laughing my arse off. Unfortunately it just wasn't often enough. Whereas Bill Bailey Dave Gorman and Ricky Gervais really kept you laughing almost non-stop, I think Lenny was trying to make you think a bit too much.
