Celebrating his 60th year, British Black acting great Sir Lenny Henry blesses us with a new BBC One show.

In 1975, a 16-year-old Lenny Henry bunked off school to appear on TV talent show New Faces, beginning a long and glittering career in comedy, theatre, and film.
In 2018 Sir Lenny is 60 – the perfect excuse to celebrate a man who has made a unique impact on British entertainment.

Hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald in front of a studio audience, the programme takes a lighthearted look back at a career that started 43 years ago and hasn’t stopped since, as well presenting some brand new sketches on a range of topical subjects.


Tune into Lenny Henry’s Birthday Show, BBC 1, Wednesday 22nd August @ 8pm
