BREAKING NEWS: Lenny Henry to appear at the Spa Bridlington

COMEDIAN Lenny Henry is coming to the Spa Bridlington in November as part of his new national tour Pop Life.

Lenny, who first made a name for himself on the comedy circuit in the 1980s and is renowned for his work with Comic Relief, will take the audience on an amusing journey through his life in music.

During his new show he describes what it was like being born into a Jamaican household with so many pictures of Elvis Presley on the wall, Lenny says: “I thought he was a relative”.

Through his teenage years Lenny would hang out at the Queen Mary Disco in the Midlands where northern soul dancers high-kicked with such ferocity. “In one tune they could maim the entire room,” he remembers.

The stand-up also looks at hip hop’s relentless obsession with women’s bodies he adds: “If that girl in the 50 Cent video wants to be recognised, she’s gotta walk in the party, bum first.”

The stand-up also offers his sympathy to multimillionaire singer Adele’s ex-boyfriend, who dumped her just before she hit the big time, he says: “I bet he regrets that phone call.”

Lenny Henry: Pop Life highlights how music goes better with everything and he will also play the piano during his performance.

He will be performing his new show at the Spa Bridlington on Tuesday November 27 at 7.30pm.
